The distribution of rabbit alpha-foetoprotein (RAFP) and its molecular variants throughout gestation.


The levels of rabbit alpha-foetoprotein (RAFP) in foetal serum, neonatal serum and amniotic fluid during gestation have been evaluated by quantitative radial immunodiffusion. RAFP attained its peak concentration on the 24th day of pregnancy in foetal serum, while in amniotic fluid peaks were observed on ;the 14th and 26th day. Temporal effects on the… (More)
