Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in plasma, and plays multiple roles in physiology, including as a carrier protein for endogenous and exogenous compounds. Recent studies provide new evidences to support the enzymatic activities of HSA and new molecular insights for such activities. Here, the structural features and enzymatic characteristics of HSA are reviewed.

Keywords: Human serum albumin, structure, drug absorption and distribution, drug metabolism, enzymatic activity, esterase-like activity, peroxidase activity, glycation.
