Alpha-feto Protein

From:Phyllis Davie <>

    My boss is unhappy with our current antibody  to Alpha-1Feto Protein
(AFP).  We are currently using a rabbit polyclonal antibody from DAKO (cat#
A0008).  While it works admirably on fetal liver, he feels we are seeing
only the tip of the iceberg on tumors such as hepatocellular carcinomas,
hepatoblastomas, and some germ cell tumors.
    My question is:  what antibodies are being used out there in
Histonetland?  What do you like about them and why?  Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
