FUNCTION: This gene encodes albumin, an abundant plasma protein essential for maintaining oncotic pressure that functions as a carrier protein for various molecules such as steriods and fatty acids in blood. This gene is primarily expressed in liver where the encoded protein undergoes proteolytic processing before secretion into the plasma. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a TALEN-mediated deletion exhibit analbuminemia but appear healthy and grossly normal and breed normally. Mice heterozygotes for an ENU-induced point mutation have significantly reduced plasma albumin and calcium levels and significantly elevated alkaline phosphatase activity. [provided by MGI curators]
