Description

Alpha-Fetoprotein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the AFP gene. It is mapped to 4q13.3. The level of AFP in amniotic fluid is used to measure renal loss of protein to screen for spina bifida and anencephaly. In rodents AFP binds estradiol to prevent the transport of this hormone across the placenta to the fetus. The main function of this is to prevent the virilization of female fetuses. Moreover, it has an important role as a diagnostic marker, especially in certain tumors and liver diseases of childhood. Alpha-Fetoprotein is also used to test the potential usefulness of plasma alpha fetoprotein determination as a diagnostic marker in biliary atresia, hepatitis, and yolk sac derived tumours.

Application Notes

The stated application concentrations are suggested starting amounts. Titration of the AFP antibody may be required due to differences in protocols and secondary/substrate sensitivity.

Immunogen

Human partial recombinant protein (AA 378-609) was used as the immunogen for this AFP antibody.

Storage

After reconstitution, the AFP antibody can be stored for up to one month at 4oC. For long-term, aliquot and store at -20oC. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
