Serum albumin is the main protein found in blood plasma and has a strong binding capacity for water, Ca2+, Na+, K+, fatty acids, hormones, drugs and others. Albumin is a globular protein that is used in numerous biochemical applications due to its high level of stability and low level of interference with various biological reactions. Its main function is the regulation of osmotic pressure in the blood as well as being the major transporter of zinc in plasma. Serum also binds to many other water-insoluble molecules. Serum has a particular affinity for many drug molecules, such as ibuprofin, and can strongly affect the way they are delivered through the body. Albumin is also an important endogenous source of amino acids.
