alpha ‑Fetoprotein/AFP in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. alpha ‑Fetoprotein/AFP was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells differentiated to hepatocytes using Mouse Anti-Human alpha ‑Fetoprotein/AFP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1369) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Detection of alpha ‑Fetoprotein/AFP in HepG2 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human alpha ‑Fetoprotein/AFP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1369, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB004, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

AFP ( alpha -Fetoprotein) is a 69-73 kDa member of the ALB/AFP/VDB family of proteins. alpha -Fetoprotein is a major plasma protein in the fetus. Its concentration is normally low in the adult except when produced by certain tumors. It is secreted by fetal liver and serves as a carrier molecule for phytoestrogens, heavy metals (Cu and Ni), estrogen and fatty acids. Mature human AFP is 591 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains three albumin domains (aa 19-210, 211-402 and 403-601), plus 15 intrachain disulfide bonds. Mature human AFP shares approximately 66% aa identity with mouse AFP.
