#ALT# What is Recombumin?

A well-described carrier protein which is present in high concentrations (40-50 g/L) in plasma, Albumin has a circulatory half-life of roughly 19 days. It has a number of functions, including protein stabilization, the ability to bind both metal ions and to surfaces, fatty acid transportation to tissues, and an anti-oxidative effect in plasma.
