Alpha Globulins

Serum proteins consisting of polypeptides. Functions largely unknown, although they appear to alter binding sites for neurotransmitters in the human brain. Two electrophoretic fractions exist: globulin contains the good type of cholesterol, 1high-density lipoprotein (HDLs); and 2 globulin contains haptoglobin.

See albumin and globulins.
