Gene: ALB (albumin) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: ALB
Name: albumin
Description: Exhibits several functions, including anion binding activity; chaperone binding activity; and toxic substance binding activity. Contributes to oxygen binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to starvation; maintenance of mitochondrion location; and negative regulation of protein oligomerization. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum; and extracellular exosome. Implicated in several diseases, including biliary tract benign neoplasm; blood protein disease; hepatobiliary system cancer (multiple); hyperthyroxinemia; and middle cerebral artery infarction. Biomarker of several diseases, including carcinoma (multiple); heart disease (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); liver disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
