an α-globulin that binds and transports biologically active, unconjugated cortisol in plasma.

(tranz-kōr'tin),
An α2-globulin in blood that binds cortisol and corticosterone; the principal corticosteroid-binding protein in the plasma.

[-kôr′tin]
a diglobulin protein that binds a majority of cortisol in the plasma. Also called corticosteroid-binding globulin.

SERPINA6

A gene on chromosome 14q32.1 that encodes an alpha-globulin with corticosteroid-binding properties, which is the major transport protein for glucocorticoids and progestins in most vertebrates. SERPINA6 localises to a chromosomal region containing several closely related serine protease inhibitors, and may have evolved by duplication events.

trans·cor·tin

(trans-kōr'tin)
An α2-globulin in blood that binds cortisol and corticosterone; the principal corticosteroid-binding protein in the plasma.
Synonym(s): corticosteroid-binding globulin.
