Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab182645 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/200.
WB 1/1000 - 1/5000. Predicted molecular weight: 69 kDa.

Target

  • Function
    Binds copper, nickel, and fatty acids as well as, and bilirubin less well than, serum albumin. Only a small percentage (less than 2%) of the human AFP shows estrogen-binding properties.
  • Tissue specificity
    Plasma. Synthesized by the fetal liver and yolk sac.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ALB/AFP/VDB family.
    Contains 3 albumin domains.
  • Developmental stage
    Occurs in the plasma of fetuses more than 4 weeks old, reaches the highest levels during the 12th-16th week of gestation, and drops to trace amounts after birth. The serum level in adults is usually less than 40 ng/ml. AFP occurs also at high levels in the plasma and ascitic fluid of adults with hepatoma.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Independent studies suggest heterogeneity of the N-terminal sequence of the mature protein and of the cleavage site of the signal sequence.
    Sulfated.
