Albumin

Albumin (serum albumin) is the most abundant protein in serum (50–60% of total serum protein). It regulates osmotic pressure and plasma pH. Albumin also binds and transports hemin, fatty acids, hormones, and various cations. Approximately 80% of plasma zinc is bound to albumin. Albumin is produced in the liver and secreted into the bloodstream. It also has broad esterase activity. Damage to the kidney can lead to albuminuria, the secretion of albumin into the urine. Increased albumin measurements in serum may be due to exogenous anabolic steroids, androgens, growth hormone, and/or insulin.
