Globulin is one of the two types of serumproteins, the other being albumin. This generic term encompasses a heterogenous series of families of proteins, with larger molecules and less soluble in pure water than albumin, which migrate less than albumin during serum electrophoresis. Blood plasma is a component of blood. ... A representation of the 3D structure of myoglobin, showing coloured alpha helices. ...
It is sometimes used synonymously with Globular protein. However, albumin is also a globular protein, but not a globulin. All other serum globular proteins are globulins. Globular proteins, or spheroproteins are one of the two main protein classes, comprising globelike proteins that are more or less soluble in aqueous solutions (where they form colloidal solutions). ... You may be looking for albumen, or egg white. ...
Protein electrophoresis is used to categorize globulins into the following four categories: Please see gel electrophoresis for the principles of electrophoresis Schematic representation of a protein electrophoresis gel In chemistry and medicine, protein electrophoresis is a method of analysing a mixture of proteins by means of gel electrophoresis, mainly in blood serum (blood plasma is not suitable). ...
