Abstract A number of serum transport proteins are known to be evolutionarily related, including albumin, alpha-fetoprotein, vitamin D-binding protein and afamin [PubMed2481749, PubMed2423133, PubMed7517938]. Albumin is the main protein of plasma; it binds water, cations (such as Ca2+, Na+ and K+), fatty acids, hormones, bilirubin and drugs - its main function is to regulate the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. Alphafeto- protein (alpha-fetoglobulin) is a foetal plasma protein that binds various cations, fatty acids and bilirubin. Vitamin D-binding protein binds to vitamin D and its metabolites, as well as to fatty acids. The biological role of afamin (alpha-albumin) has not yet been characterised. The 3D structure of human serum albumin has been determined by X-ray crystallography to a resolution of 2.8A [PubMed1630489]. It comprises three homologous domains that assemble to form a heart-shaped molecule [PubMed1630489]. Each domain is a product of two subdomains that possess common structural motifs [PubMed1630489]. The principal regions of ligand binding to human serum albumin are located in hydrophobic cavities in subdomains IIA and IIIA, which exhibit similar chemistry. Structurally, the serum albumins are similar, each domain containing five or six internal disulphide bonds, as shown schematically below:

Browse genome assignments for this superfamily. The SUPERFAMILY hidden Markov model library has been used to carry out SCOP domain assignments to all genomes at the superfamily level.


Alignments of sequences to 6 models in this superfamily are available by clicking on the 'Alignments' icon above. PDB sequences less than 40% identical are shown by default, but any other sequence(s) may be aligned. Select PDB sequences, genome sequences, or paste in or upload your own sequences.


Browse and view proteins in genomes which have different domain combinations including a Serum albumin-like domain.


Examine the distribution of domain superfamilies, or families, across the major taxonomic kingdoms or genomes within a kingdom. This gives an immediate impression of how superfamilies, or families, are restricted to certain kingdoms of life.


Explore domain occurrence network where nodes represent genomes and edges are domain architectures (shared between genomes) containing the superfamily of interest.

There are 6 hidden Markov models representing the Serum albumin-like superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
