Plasma proteins

Synthesized by liver or produced by plasma (B) cells

• Albumin
• Transferrin Transport proteins
• Ceruloplasmin
• Enzymes – coagulation enzymes, complement factors
• C-reactive protein – acute phase reactant
• Immunoglobulins – humoral immunity

66 kDa

•Accounts for ~50% of the total plasma protein and ~ 50%

of the total liver protein production

• Half-life ~ 20 days

• Highly polar

• At pH 7.4 it is anionic with 20 negative charges per molecule

Functions of Albumin

• Transport of long chain fatty acids & sterols

• Transport of bilirubin
• Binding and solubilization of drugs
Regulation of colloidal pressure
Decreases in albumin concentration cause edema

Gaw: Clinical Biochemistry; Churchill Livingstone (1999), p. 44.

Causes of decreased plasma albumin:
I. Decreased synthesis
A. malnutrtion
B. malabsorption
C. advanced chronic liver disease

II. Abnormal distribution or dilution

A. overhydration
B. increased capillary permeability like in

XI. Abnormal excretion or degradation

A. nephrotic syndrome
B. burns
C. hemorrhage
D. certain catabolic states
E. protein losing enteropathies

XVIII.Rare congenital defects

A. hypoalbuminemia
B. analbuminemia

• Transports iron in plasma as ferric ions (Fe3+) – each

transferrin molecule binds 2 Fe3+

• Protects the body against the toxic effects of free


•Normally 30% saturated with Fe3+ - increased or

decreased saturation is indicative of iron overload or
deficiency, respectively

• Decreased in inflammatory states due to excessive

degradation of transferrin- Fe3+ complexes

•Major copper transport protein

• Regulates oxidation-reduction,
transport and utilization of iron

• Increased concentrations are

found in active liver disease or
tissue damage

• Decreases are sometimes

observed in individuals with
Wilson’s disease
• Enzymes of the coagulation and complement cascade have a
defined function in blood

• Others reside elsewhere in the body and appear incidentally

in the blood – their measurement is of diagnostic value

Creatine kinase

Acid phosphatase Amylase


• Major component of the acute phase response and

a marker of bacterial infection

• Mediates the binding of foreign polysaccharides,

phospholipids and complex polyanions, as well as the
activation of complement

• <1 mg/mL in normal plasma

• Slightly elevated levels of CRP are indicative of

chronic, low-grade inflammation and have been
correlated with an increased risk of cardiovascular
• Proteins produced and secreted
by B cells specific for the foreign
particle that stimulated their

• Five classes of Ig

• Multiple myeloma: arises from the

aberrant proliferation of a single B
cell. Light chains of Igs are
produced in excess of heavy chains
= paraproteins.

Elevated serum protein levels are

usually due to an increase in the Ig
fraction and may indicate the
presence of a paraprotein.
