Alpha Fetoprotein antibody
Elevated AFP levels are indicative of certain cancers, particularly hepatocellular carcinoma, cancer of the testes or ovaries or a malignant teratoma. During pregnancy increased levels of AFP may indicate neural tube defects such as spina bifida (Bredaki et al. 2012), while decreased levels could indicate Down’s syndrome (Norgaard-Pedersen et al. 1976).
Mouse Anti Human Alpha Fetoprotein antibody recognizes alpha fetoprotein as a band of ~69 kDa in HepG2 whole cell lysate by Western blotting under reducing conditions and does not cross-react with human albumin.
