  BioMed Central | Full text | Plasma proteins in a standardised skin mini-erosion (II): effects of extraction pressure
The study was undertaken using the same subjects, materials and methods as described in: "Plasma proteins in a standardised skin mini-erosion (I): permeability changes as a function of time" [4].
The time course for the concentrations of the individual proteins was roughly similar in both extraction-pressure groups, indicating that the initial inflammatory stimulus was the determining factor.
Samples extracted with higher negative pressure contained a lower protein concentration at 0 h, indicating an increased water fraction and that the sieve function of the vascular wall was intact.

For the individual proteins, the relative mean concentrations were 65 ± 36% for insulin, 48 ± 12% for albumin, 30 ± 19% for transferrin, 31 ± 15%for IgG and 19.5 ± 10% for alpha-2-macroglobulin.
Transport of plasma proteins over the endothelium from the vascular space to the interstitium is considered to be a passive process governed by the laws of convection and diffusion.
For the remaining proteins, the IF/plasma ratios at 0 h are similar for albumin and alpha-2-macroglobulin, whereas the ratios for prealbumin, transferrin and IgG are slightly lower than those found in other studies on interstitial fluid [13,17,18].

  Relationships between Seminal Plasma Proteins and Boar Fertility:
Previous studies indicated that the relative concentrations of two seminal plasma proteins were highly correlated with in vitro fertility of boar semen and could be used to rank boars in terms of their fertility when bred to sows (Flowers, 1998).
The relationship between the seminal plasma protein profile and boar fertility as measured by farrowing rates and number of pigs born alive is shown in Table 1.
As a result, quantification of the seminal plasma protein profile appears to be an excellent qualitative test for ranking boars prospectively in terms of their subsequent fertility.

 Blood Work: Science News Online, March 15, 2003
One protein that was missing was C-reactive protein, whose elevated presence in the blood may serve as a predictor of heart attacks (SN: 12/7/02, p.
The plasma donor's heart may have been so healthy that she had little C-reactive protein in her blood, or some facet of the group's approach may have obscured the protein's detection.
Once a low-abundance plasma protein is identified, it's still a formidable challenge to develop an inexpensive and effective assay to detect it or measure its concentration.

 The Interaction of Plasma Proteins and Platelets with a Homologous Series of Polyurethanes (SPE) (MPB archive, Jan 96)
Plasma composition was evaluated both before and after polymer exposure in order to determine the significant material factors affecting protein adsorption and ascertain the composition profile of the adsorbed protein layer.
The normalized optical density of the depleted protein was then compared with the normalized optical density of that same protein from a slab gel used to separate and evaluate the protein from the unexposed plasma control.
The pure-phase homopolymer had higher protein and platelet adsorption than did the higher-phase-purity PU-65-1000 and PU-65-2000 copolymers, indicating that a range of surface hard-segment concentrations may be important to optimize the structure of blood-compatible polyurethane applications.

Proteins, the principal constituents of the protoplasm of all cells, are of high molecular weight and consist essentially of combinations of a-amino acids in peptide linkages.
Twenty different amino acids are commonly found in proteins, and each protein has a unique, genetically defined amino acid sequence which determines its specific shape and function.

These proteins usually elevate during the acute phase of inflammatory disease, and therefore are helpful in the diagnosis and monitoring of many infectious diseases and other causes of chronic inflammation.
Serum proteins include all plasma proteins except the coagulation proteins, principally fibrinogen, which are eliminated by clot separation.

 FBR Plasma Proteins Pocket Guide
Serum protein testing has been an integral, although underutilized, part of clinical laboratory science for many years.
Through an educational grant from Dade Behring, Inc., FBR has developed this 152-page guide on serum protein utility and interpretation for day to day use by practitioners and laboratorians.
The guide can be used on many different levels by medical students, residents, internists, specialists, etc. The guide is most helpful in deciding which tests to order for a suspected diagnosis; interpreting protein results already in a patient's chart and as a source of background material for serum protein testing.

The quantities of the constituents of serum are the same as those for plasma minus the small amount of clotting agents, such as fibrinogen, destroyed during the clotting process.
This is because most of the plasma protein molecules are too large to pass through the capillary walls into the interstitial area.
In addition to proteins and inorganic ions the blood plasma carries a wide range of substances in transit to various tissues throughout the body.
