The specific ligand binding ability of recombinant human serum albumin produced in yeast using the synthetic gene was studied by affinity Chromatographic method. It was found that synthetic protein possesses those stereoselective binding and binding interactions for several chiral benzodiazepine and coumarin compounds which are characteristic of the natural human serum albumin, suggesting identical tertiary structures.
