  • Fibrinogen
    Fibrinogen (factor I) is a glycoprotein in vertebrates that helps in the formation of blood clots.
  • Haptoglobin
    Haptoglobin (abbreviated as Hp) is the protein that in humans is encoded by the HP gene.
  • Plasmin
    Plasmin is an important enzyme (EC 3.4.21.7) present in blood that degrades many blood plasma proteins, including fibrin clots.
  • Fibrin
    Fibrin (also called Factor Ia) is a fibrous, non-globular protein involved in the clotting of blood.
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme
    Angiotensin-converting enzyme (EC 3.4.15.1), or ACE, is a central component of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), which controls blood pressure by regulating the volume of fluids in the body.
  • Transferrin
    Transferrins are iron-binding blood plasma glycoproteins that control the level of free iron in biological fluids.
  • Hemocyanin
    Hemocyanins (also spelled haemocyanins and abbreviated Hc) are proteins that transport oxygen throughout the bodies of some invertebrate animals.
  • Hemoglobin C
    Hemoglobin C (abbreviated as Hb C or HbC) is an abnormal hemoglobin in which substitution of a glutamic acid residue with a lysine residue at the 6th position of the β-globin chain has occurred (E6K substitution).
  • Hemerythrin
    Hemerythrin (also spelled haemerythrin; from Greek words αίμα = blood and ερυθρός = red) is an oligomeric protein responsible for oxygen (O2) transport in the marine invertebrate phyla of sipunculids, priapulids, brachiopods, and in a single annelid worm genus, Magelona.
  • Albumin
    The albumins (formed from Latin: albumen "(egg) white; dried egg white") are a family of globular proteins, the most common of which are the serum albumins.
  • Hemoglobin
    Hemoglobin (/ˈhiːməˌɡloʊbᵻn, ˈhɛ-, -moʊ-/); also spelled haemoglobin and abbreviated Hb or Hgb, is the iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of all vertebrates (with the exception of the fish family Channichthyidae) as well as the tissues of some invertebrates.
  • Fetuin
    Fetuins are blood proteins that are made in the liver and secreted into the bloodstream.
  • Erythroferrone
    Erythroferrone is a protein hormone, abbreviated as ERFE, encoded in humans by the FAM132B gene.
  • Factor V Leiden
    Factor V Leiden thrombophilia is a genetic disorder of blood clotting.
  • Fibulin
    Fibulin (FY-beau-lin) (now known as Fibulin-1 FBLN1) is the prototypic member of a multigene family, currently with seven members.
  • Human serum albumin
    Human serum albumin is the version of serum albumin found in human blood.
  • Band 3
    Band 3 anion transport protein, also known as anion exchanger 1 (AE1) or band 3 or solute carrier family 4 member 1 (SLC4A1), is a protein that is encoded by the SLC4A1 gene in humans.
  • Cholesterylester transfer protein
    Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), also called plasma lipid transfer protein, is a plasma protein that facilitates the transport of cholesteryl esters and triglycerides between the lipoproteins.
  • Hepcidin
    Hepcidin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HAMP gene.
  • Hemoglobin D-Punjab
    Hemoglobin D-Punjab is one of the sub-variants of Hemoglobin D, a variant of hemoglobin found in human blood.
  • Serum albumin
    Serum albumin, often referred to simply as blood albumin, is an albumin (a type of globular protein) found in vertebrate blood.
