Pronunciation: [ˈatmɪdˌalbjuːmˌɪn] (IPA)

The word "atmidalbumin" is comprised of Greek roots "atmi" meaning vapor, "albumin" meaning white of an egg, and "in" indicating a substance or chemical. The IPA phonetic transcription for this word is: /ætmiːdælbjʊmɪn/. The initial "a" sound is pronounced like "cat", followed by a long "e" sound in "atmi", then "dal" as in "doll", "byu" as in "beau", and "min" as in "been". This word refers to a protein molecule found in the blood, specifically in the albumin group, that is sensitive to changes in atmospheric pressure.

ATMIDALBUMIN Meaning and Definition

  1. Atmidalbumin refers to a glycoprotein found in the blood plasma of humans and other mammals. It is a variant of serum albumin, which is the most abundant protein in the plasma. Atmidalbumin is derived from the term "atmidal," meaning "midway," as it is an albumin molecule located between two other albumin molecules.

    Atmidalbumin has a molecular weight slightly higher than regular albumin due to its additional glycosylation. It is formed by the modification of albumin through the addition of sugar molecules, which alters its structure and properties. This modification can occur naturally or through various pathological conditions and diseases.

    The function of atmidalbumin is not completely understood, but it is believed to contribute to the overall physiological role of albumin. Albumin is known for its ability to transport various substances, such as hormones, fatty acids, and drugs, throughout the body. Atmidalbumin may possess similar transport capabilities, helping to carry certain molecules or ions in the bloodstream.

    Furthermore, atmidalbumin has been investigated as a potential biomarker for certain medical conditions. Studies have shown that the level of atmidalbumin in the blood can change in response to specific diseases or disorders. Monitoring these changes may aid in the diagnosis, prognosis, or therapeutic monitoring of these conditions.

    In summary, atmidalbumin is a modified form of serum albumin that contains additional sugar molecules. It is involved in the transport of substances in the blood plasma and has the potential to serve as a biomarker for certain medical conditions.

  2. A modified protein obtained by the action of superheated steam.
