The serum of these species contains all those proteins that are not involved in blood clotting factors because it doesn’t contain any sort of blood cells either white or red. Also, these serums have high level of electrolytes , antigens , hormones and different exogenous substances that includes microorganisms and drugs that helps in the growth of the cells in in-vitro conditions favourably.

Furthermore, Malondialdehyde modified bovine serum albumin is also a principle and the most useful product in different research activities because of its functionality. These products helps in a way that when it reacts with the cellular macromolecules like proteins, DNA and RNA it reacts with DNA to form certain adducts in the form of deoxy guanosine and deoxyadenosine that can be harmful and mutagenic so this property allows it to be used as a marker of lipid peroxidation in different experiments that increases its usability in the field of biotechnology to a greater extent.
