How can you use “albumin” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Tat has been shown to down-regulate mannose receptor, EDF-1, CD3-gamma, and TCR/CD3 surface receptor [ 14 ] . Tat reduces mannose receptor levels and promoter activity in mature macrophages and dendritic cells by interfering with the host transcriptional machinery; resulting in decreased levels of surface mannose receptor needed for Ag (mannosylated albumin uptake) or pathogen capture (Pneumocystis carinii phagocytosis), and eventual delivery to MHC class II-containing intracellular compartments [ 15 ] . EDF-1, a gene down-regulated when endothelial cells are induced to differentiate in vitro , was shown to be down-regulated by Tat at the transcriptional level, resulting in the inhibition of endothelial cell growth and in the transition from a nonpolar cobblestone phenotype to a polar fibroblast-like phenotype [ 16 ] .

  • Some studies suggest that dialysis patients with low LDL cholesterol levels have increased risk of mortality vs. those with higher LDL cholesterol levels [ 24 ] . LDL cholesterol and conventional cardiac risk factors are insensitive predictors of CAD in this population [ 25 ] , and may reflect the high frequency of malnutrition [ 26 ] and established cardiovascular disease [ 27 ] . In our study, albumin remained stable as LDL cholesterol levels declined.

  • Protein concentration was determined by the method of Lowry using bovine serum albumin as standard.

  • The albumin in the PG-1 vehicle helped reduce nonspecific adsorption of protegrins when the stock solutions were serially diluted [ 22 37 ] . These PG-1 stock solutions were filter-sterilized prior to storage at either -20°C for short term (<3 months) or -80°C for long-term storage.
