Question

What is the importance of plasma proteins?

Solution

Plasma is the colourless fluid of blood which helps in the transport of food, CO2, waste products, and salts. It constitutes about 55% of blood. About 6.8% of the plasma is constituted by proteins such as fibrinogens, globulins, and albumins.

Fibrinogen is a plasma glycoprotein synthesised by the liver. It plays a role in the clotting of blood.

Globulin is a major protein of the plasma. It protects the body against infecting agents.

Albumin is a major protein of the plasma. It helps in maintaining the fluid volume within the vascular space.
