Any of a group of simple proteins soluble in salt solutions and forming a large fraction of blood serum protein. The three principal subsets of globulin are alpha globulin, beta globulin, and gamma globulin, which are distinguished by their respective degrees of electrophoretic mobility (alpha having the greatest and gamma having the least).
- Normal urinary proteins include albumin, serum globulins, and proteins secreted by the nephron.
