Encyclopedia > Globulin

Globulin is one of the two types of serum proteins, 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). ...

  • Alpha 1 globulins
  • Alpha 2 globulins
  • Beta globulins
  • Gamma globulins (immunoglobulins)

Gamma globulins are a class of proteins in the blood, identified by their position after serum protein electrophoresis. ...

Serum globulin electrophoresis is a form of protein electrophoresis that examines the globulin proteins.
Identification of the various types of globulins (globulin electrophoresis) can be useful in the diagnosis of various disorders.
Globulins are roughly divided into alpha, beta, and gamma globulins.
AllRefer.com - globulin (Biochemistry) - Encyclopedia (216 words)
globulin, any of a large family of proteins of a spherical or globular shape that are widely distributed throughout the plant and animal kingdoms.
The term globulin is a partly procedural one, used in classifying an otherwise diverse group of proteins that are soluble in water or dilute salt solutions.
Other globulins are involved in the transport of a variety of substances, including lipids, hormones, and inorganic ions.
