Albumin Removal

Human serum albumin (HSA, 66 kDa) typically accounts for more than 65% of the total protein present in plasma and serum samples. This can prevent the detection of low abundant plasma and serum proteins in most experiments. Albumin also distorts lanes during electrophoresis if a large amount of total protein is loaded to permit the detection of low abundant proteins. Albumin can also mask other proteins that migrate around the 50-70 kDa thereby preventing their detection.
