Alpha-1-fetoprotein (AFP) is a 70 kDa glycoprotein, synthesized by the cells of the embryonic yolk sac, fetal liver and fetal intestinal tract. Expression of AFP has been demonstrated in many hepatocellular carcinomas and in gonadal and extragonadal germ cells tumors, including yolk sac tumors. The antibody is a useful aid for classification of neoplastic liver diseases, yolk sac tumors and mixed germ cell tumors.

Alpha-1-fetoprotein isolated from human cord serum.
Ready-to-use polyclonal rabbit antibody provided in liquid form in a buffer containing stabilizing protein and 0.015 mol/L sodium azide.
Autostainer Link 48
The antibody reacts with human alpha-1-fetoprotein. Traces of contaminating antibodies have been removed by solid-phase absorption with human plasma proteins. In indirect ELISA no significant reaction is observed with normal human plasma.
