Table 1 Values (%) for f(HMA), f(HNA-1), and f(HNA-2) of serum and lumbar CSF albumins from patients with orthopedic disorders

From: Human astrocytes and aortic endothelial cells actively convert the oxidized form of albumin to the reduced form: reduced albumin might participate in redox regulation of nerve and blood vessel systems
