|The AFP afp (Catalog #MBS6012008) is an Antibody produced from Rabbit and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. The a-Fetoprotein, ID (Alpha Fetoprotein, Alpha-fetoprotein Precursor, AFP, Alpha-1-fetoprotein, Alpha-fetoglobulin, FETA, HPAFP) reacts with Human and may cross-react with other species as described in the data sheet. MyBioSource\'s a-Fetoprotein can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, ELISA (EL/EIA), Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC).
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry.
Dilution: Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin embedded): 2.5ug/ml. Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the AFP afp for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The AFP afp product has the following accession number(s) (GI #4501989) (NCBI Accession #NP_001125.1) (Uniprot Accession #P02771). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

AFP is normally synthesized in the liver, intestinal tract, and yolk sac of the fetus. Antibody to AFP has been shown to be useful in detecting hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) and germ cell neoplasms, especially yolk sac tumors.
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to human AFP. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing AFP are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as AFP may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. AFP also interacts with the following gene(s): FOXA1, FOXA3, GPC3, IGFBP1, JUN, TP53. Adenocarcinoma, Carcinoma, Carcinoma, Hepatocellular, Liver Cirrhosis, Liver Diseases, Liver Neoplasms, Neoplasm Metastasis, Neoplasms, Neoplasms, Experimental, Nervous System Diseases are some of the diseases may be linked to a-Fetoprotein, ID (Alpha Fetoprotein, Alpha-fetoprotein Precursor, AFP, Alpha-1-fetoprotein, Alpha-fetoglobulin, FETA, HPAFP). The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Blood, Brain, Embryonic Tissue, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Placenta, Uterus, Vascular tissues are correlated with this protein.
