LP15837-5   Prealbumin
Prealbuimn, a tetrameric protein (MW 50,000-70,000) composed of 4 chains, migrates on electrophoresis in 3 distinct fractions. It migrates faster than serum albumin and its concentration ranges from 7 to 33 percent in the serum. The levels of prealbumin levels decrease in liver disease.

Serum total protein, also called plasma total protein or total protein, is a biochemical test for measuring the total amount of protein in blood plasma or serum.

Protein in the plasma is made up of albumin and globulin. The globulin in turn is made up of α1, α2, β, and γ globulins. These fractions can be quantitated using protein electrophoresis, but the total protein test is a faster and cheaper test that estimates the total of all fractions together. The traditional method for measuring total protein uses the biuret reagent, but other chemical methods such as Kjeldahl method, dye-binding and refractometry are now available. The measurement is usually performed on automated analysers along with other laboratory tests. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
