Introduction

AFP is normally synthesized in the liver, intestinal tract, and yolk sac of the fetus. Antibody to AFP has been shown to be useful in detecting hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) and germ cell neoplasms, especially yolk sac tumors.

Description

AFP produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 600 amino acids (19-609a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 67.5kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 57-70kDa).

AFP is expressed with a ADP at N-terminus and 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Sf9, Baculovirus cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

AFP protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
