- Product overview
ab108680 alpha Fetoprotein Human ELISA Kit is an immunoenzymatic colorimetric method for quantitative determination of alpha Fetoprotein in Human serum and plasma.
Alpha Fetoprotein (AFP) is a 68 kDa glycoprotein, which is normally only produced in the fetus during its development. It is normally produced by the liver and yolk sac of the fetus. AFP levels decrease soon after birth and probably has no function in normal adults. It binds the hormone estradiol to keep it from affecting the fetal brain. Its measurement during pregnancy has been useful to detect certain abnormalities - specifically, if high levels of AFP are found in amniotic fluid, it can indicate a developmental defect in the baby. In some patients who are not pregnant a tumor can produce AFP, thus it can be used as a tumor marker. AFP is the main tumor marker (along with HCG) to diagnose testicular cancer and its values over time can have significant effect on the treatment plan.
