Albumin is used to solubilize lipids, and is also used as a blocking agent in Western blots or ELISA applications. Globulin free albumins are suitable for use in applications where no other proteins should be present (e.g., electrophoresis).
Albumins are a group of acidic proteins which occur plentifully in the body fluids and tissues of mammals and in some plant seeds.
