The radioisotope test using 1-131 labelled serum albumin, performed during a period of reactive hyperemia, provides quantitative data which express the rate at which radioactive blood flowing from the leg replaces the nonradioactive blood present in the foot. It has been applied in normal subjects and in patients with arterial occlusions in the lower limbs. High washout rates, i.e. small M/2 index values, were found in the former, whereas low washout rates with higher M/2 indices were observed in the latter. Surprisingly, patients with a very low washout rate could be without subjective symptoms. The usefulness of the test in clinical practice is explained.

    The photoreactions of 3,3' ,4' ,5-tetrachlorosalicylanilide anion (TCSA-) with two serum proteins were studied. TCSA- and anions of two similar compounds, N-ethyl-3,5-dichlorosalicylamide and salicylanilide, bind noncovalently to human serum albumin (HSA) without irradiation in aqueous...

    The authors sandwiched protein molecules into the layered structure of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Light emission from the OLEDs was suppressed on the area with the protein submonolayers of 4–7 nm thick. They found that this suppression depended on the density of the proteins...

    Background: Iophenoxic acid is an iodinated radiocontrast agent that was withdrawn from clinical use because of its exceptionally long half-life in the body, which was due in part to its high-affinity binding to human serum albumin (HSA). It was replaced by Iopanoic acid, which has an amino...

    We have studied the effect of 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol (TFE), an α-helix inducer, versus methyl cyanide (MeCN), a β-sheet inducer, on acid-denatured human serum albumin (HSA) using far-UV circular dichroism, intrinsic fluorescence, 1-anilino-8-naphthalene sulfonate binding, and acrylamide...

John; Gillespie, Matthew T.; Nagahama, Masami; Tsuji, Akihiko; Matsuda, Yoshiko // Journal of Biochemistry;1999, Vol. 125 Issue 3, p627 

    Serum albumin is synthesized as a larger precursor form, proalbumin, which undergoes proteolytic processing at a dibasic site by a hepatic proprotein convertase within the secretory pathway to generate the mature form. Although furin, a member of the subtilisin-like proprotein convertase (SPC)...
