GeneID: 174 Human AFP

Swiss-port # P02771 Human Alpha-fetoprotein

Gene Symbol AFP
Gene Full Name alpha-fetoprotein
Background Alpha fetoprotein (AFP) is a 70kD glycoprotein which is produced primarily by liver cells in foetuses. It exists in significant amount in foetal plasma and decreases rapidly after birth. Moderate amount of AFP exists in serum of pregnant women. Monitoring mother’s serum AFP level in second trimester pregnancy can help assessing birth defects such as Down syndrome, neural tube defect and anencephaly. Elevated AFP level in men, children and non-pregnant women is associated with neoplastic conditions in lever, testicle or ovary.
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. [UniProt]
