  • Product overview

    Matched Antibody Pair kit is a titrated unlabeled capture antibody, a titrated biotin-labeled detector and a calibrated protein standard. The Matched Antibody Pair Kit can be used to quantify native and recombinant mouse alpha 1 Fetoprotein.


    Both capture and detector antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies.


    Optimization of the kit reagents to sample type, immunoassay format or instrumentation may be required. Guidelines for use of this kit in a standard 96-well microplate sandwich ELISA using HRP/TMB system of colorimetric detection is described in this assay procedure for the purposes of quantification.


    Additional protocol information and tips on the use of the Matched Antibody Pair kits for sandwich ELISA can be found on our website.


    For additional information on the performance of the antibody pair used in this kit, please see our equivalent SimpleStep ELISA® (ab210969) which uses the same antibody pair.

  • Research areas

  • 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.
