plas·ma pro·teins

dissolved proteins (>100) of blood plasma, mainly albumins and globulins (normally 6-8 g/100 mL); they hold fluid in blood vessels by osmosis and include antibodies and blood-clotting proteins.
Synonym(s): serum proteins

plas·ma pro·teins

(plaz'mă prō'tēnz)
Dissolved proteins (more than 100) of blood plasma, mainly albumins and globulins (normally 6-8 g/100 mL); they hold fluid in blood vessels by osmosis and include antibodies and blood-clotting proteins.

plasma proteins

The proteins present in blood plasma. They include albumin, the range of IMMUNOGLOBULINS and prothrombin and fibrinogen necessary for blood clotting. Plasma proteins help to maintain the OSMOTIC PRESSURE of the blood and hence the blood volume.
