Blood: biochemistry - total globulin

Synonym(s): TG, globulins G

Contributor(s): Annalisa Barrelet, Kathleen P Freeman

Overview

  • Composed of alpha-, beta- and gamma-globulin fractions   Blood biochemistry: total globulin - normal electrophoresis scan  .
  • Alpha- and beta- may be further subdivided into alpha-1 and -2 and beta-1 and -2.
  • Calculated parameter: [total protein]   Blood: biochemistry - total protein  minus [albumin]   Blood: biochemistry - albumin  (TP - albumin = globulin).
  • Examination of individual fractions following electrophoretic separation more specific than consideration of total globulins.
