Welcome to the Albumin Website
This website will feature discoveries regarding serum albumin, the most prevalent protein of the blood plasma. It contains an updated list of published albumin mutations with references, accession numbers for nucleotide sequences, the list of registered cases of analbuminemia with references, plus news items of general interest regarding albumin.
NOTE: Management of this website is now shared between Dr. Ulrich Kragh-Hansen, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark, and Dr. Theodore Peters, Jr., Bassett Healthcare, Cooperstown, NY, USA.
Management will pass completely to Dr. Kragh-Hansen after a short overlap period.
General details about albumin are available in a recent single-author book, "All about Albumin. Biochemistry, Genetics, and Medical Applications", by Theodore Peters, Jr., 452 pp. Over 2000 references. Academic Press, San Diego, 1995, ISBN 0-12-552110-3. It has recently had a 2nd printing. It is now out of print, but copies might be available on Alibris, E-bay, or from ScienceDirect. To receive a copy of Errata for the book, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTICE: Readers who wish access to T. Peters' 13,000-reference albumin file for scientific use are welcome to contact him at the same email address.
