Catalog #: A2010013 (1 mg)
Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) is a protein essentially produced during the fetal stages of human development. As such, it is abundant in fetal serum and scarce in adult serum. Because of its ability to binds metals such as copper and nickel as well as metabolites such as fatty acids and bilirubin, AFP is believed to be a fetal version of the serum albumins found in adults. Levels of AFP in the serum of pregnant women can be correlated to the health of the fetus. Bulk pricing and biotinylation services are available.
