Description

Immunogen

human α-fetoprotein

General description

α-Fetoprotein (AFP) is a one of the main glycoprotein present in the fetal liver, gastrointestinal tract, and yolk sac. AFP levels in amniotic fluid have been used as biomarkers for anencephaly and spina bifida.
Mouse Monoclonal Anti-α-Fetoprotein antibody recognizes an epitope of α-fetoprotein, present in human and several other species. Cross-reactivity has been observed with human, dog, and pig, but not with bovine, cat, rat, and mouse. The product does not cross-react with human serum albumin.

Antigen Background

AFP is a plasma protein found highly expressed in the human fetus where it functions to block the transport of estradiol across the placenta.

Physical form

The product is provided as ascites fluid with 0.1% sodium azide as a preservative.

Application

Mouse Monoclonal Anti-α-Fetoprotein has been used for immunocytochemistry. The product can also be used for dot blot and indirect ELISA.
