What happens to saturated albumins?

  1. Hi all,

    I know that albumins function as a transport protein for drugs, hormones and fatty acids. My question is, what happens to these albumins when they are saturated? Do they slowly release their bound components over time? Or are the albumins eliminated from the body so that new ones are produced to replace them?

    Many thanks,

    If they didn't release what's bound to them they couldn't be transporters!
