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.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted.

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Predicted band size: 67 kDa
    Observed band size: 70 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?



    Blocking/Dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.

    Exposure time: Lane 1: 10 seconds; Lane 2/4: 1 second; Lane 3: 3 seconds.

    The observed molecular weight is consistent with the literature (PMID: 18525461).

Confocal image showing cytoplasmic staining on Hepa1-6 cell line.

    The nuclear counter stain is DAPI (blue). Tubulin is detected with Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) (ab195889) (red) at 1/200 dilution.

    Secondary antibody only control: Used PBS instead of primary antibody, secondary antibody is Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution.

  • Flow cytometric analysis of 4% paraformaldehyde-fixed Hepa1-6 (mouse hepatoma epithelial cell line) cell line labeling alpha 1 Fetoprotein with ab213328 at 1/500 dilution (red) compared with a Rabbit IgG, monoclonal [EPR25A] - Isotype Control (ab172730) (black) and an unlabeled control (cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody) (blue). Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) at 1/2000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.
