We have completed the structural study of five rare types of inherited albumin variants (alloalbumins) discovered in the Biochemical Genetics Study of 15,581 unrelated children in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We have also identified the structural change in five other alloalbumin specimens detected during clinical electrophoresis of sera from Japanese living near Tokyo. Each of the five albumin variants from Nagasaki and Hiroshima has a single amino acid substitution. All of these substitutions…

Mutations and polymorphisms of the gene of the major human blood protein, serum albumin

The majority of the currently known mutations of the familiar human blood protein, serum albumin (ALB), were detected upon clinical electrophoretic studies, as a result of a point mutation of a charged amino acid residue.

The ALB gene analysis with 3D modeling is useful for determining the nature of bisalbuminemia and for predicting the effects on the albumin-binding affinity of other biochemical compounds.

Human serum albumin variants in China: a molecular epidemiological investigation and literature review

This study provides the first report of the detailed prevalence and molecular characterization of ALB variants in southern China, and compared with other areas of China, Wuxi had a different pattern ofALB variants and a high prevalence of proalbumin Lille.

Identification of a 130-kDa albumin in tuatara (Sphenodon) and detection of a novel albumin polymorphism

Electrophoretic, immunochemical, and protein sequence analyses were performed on plasma albumin of the tuatara (Sphenodon), a rare reptile endemic to New Zealand. The analyses revealed that, unlike

Influence of mutations caused by radiation exposure on the bilirubin binding sites of human serum albumin

It was found that amino acid substitutions have different effects on the ability of human serum albumin to bind bilirubin, and the inhibition constants are significantly higher than with known binding sites.

Variation in coding exons of two electrophoretic alleles at the pigtail macaque carbonic anhydrase I locus as determined by direct, double-stranded sequencing of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products

A greater genetic variability at the CA I locus in this macaque species than previously realized is indicated.

Anthropological Significance of Alloalbuminaemia

The occurrence of point mutations at the same site in the albumin molecule in widely different population groups prompted us to trace the origin and affinities of the variants concerned and draw
