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… Expand
Mutations and polymorphisms of the gene of the major human blood protein, serum albumin
TLDR
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. Expand
Human serum albumin isoforms: genetic and molecular aspects and functional consequences.
TLDR
Alloalbumins do not seem to be associated with disease, they can be used as markers of migration and provide a model for study of neutral molecular evolution, and can also give valuable molecular information about albumins binding sites, antioxidant and enzymatic properties, as well as stability.

[Clinical characteristics and ALB gene mutation analysis of Korean patients with bisalbuminemia].
TLDR
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. Expand
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, unlikeExpand
The chimpanzee alpha-fetoprotein-encoding gene shows structural similarity to that of gorilla but distinct differences from that of human.
TLDR
The deduced polypeptide chain is composed of a 19-amino-acid putative leader peptide, followed by 590 aa of the mature protein, and the sequence of chimpanzee AFP was compared with those of the previously published human AFP and gorilla AFP. Expand
Structure of serum albumin.
TLDR
This chapter provides an insight of the findings of past significant papers with the current knowledge of the recently determined high resolution X-ray structure of serum albumin and suggests that AFP may have a higher affinity for some unknown ligands important for fetal development. Expand
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
Two, electrophoretically distinct, forms of carbonic anhydrase I (CA Ia and CA Ib) are found at high polymorphic frequencies in red cells of natural populations of pigtail macaques,Macaca nemestrina,Expand
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
TLDR
A greater genetic variability at the CA I locus in this macaque species than previously realized is indicated. Expand
FLUORESCENCE INVESTIGATIONS OF ALBUMIN FROM PATIENTS WITH FAMILIAL DYSALBUMINEMIC HYPERTHYROXINEMIA *
TLDR
Time‐resolved data suggest that the albumin from the dysalbuminemic patients is actually an approximately equimolar mixture of normal HSA and FDH‐HSA indicative of heterologous expression. Expand
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 drawExpand
