Gene Information

human ... ALBU(213)

General description

The gene HSA (human serum albumin) is mapped to human chromosome 4q13.3. The gene encodes a protein of 585 amino acids with a molecular weight of 66.4kDa. HSA is the most abundant protein in the plasma and has many metal-binding sites.


HSA (human serum albumin) has been used for the development of automated dye-binding method for serum albumin determination using bromcresol purple. It has also been used to study effect of HSA on DNA transfection by lipoplexes.

Biochem/physiol Actions

HSA (human serum albumin) mainly works as a carrier for various nutrients, metabolites and xenobiotics. It interacts with plasma zinc and regulates uptake of zinc in cells. HSA plays a crucial role in drug pharmacokinetics. It also controls oncotic pressure and volume of the blood. Mutations in the gene are linked with congenital analbuminemia and familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia.

Physical form

Sterile filtered yellowish liquid.
