Albumennoun

The white part of an egg; being mostly the protein albumin and water.

Albuminnoun

‘analysis showed traces of haemoglobin and serum albumin’; ‘human and baboon albumins’;

Albumennoun

Same as Albumin.

Albumin

Albumin is a family of globular proteins, the most common of which are the serum albumins. All the proteins of the albumin family are water-soluble, moderately soluble in concentrated salt solutions, and experience heat denaturation.

Albumennoun
