Blood Proteins Quiz

Blood proteins, also termed plasma proteins, are proteins present in blood plasma. They serve many different functions, including the transport of lipids, hormones, vitamins, and minerals in the activity and functioning of the immune system. Check out our online quiz and know more about them with every question you attempt!
