Alpha-Feto Protein (AFP) is a protein produced by the fetus, which is excreted into the amniotic fluid and into the mother's bloodstream through the placenta. The amount of AFP, both in the maternalÕs blood and in the amniotic fluid, at particular periods during the pregnancy, may be associated with the presence of neural tube defects or chromosomal problems in the baby. AFP synthesis occurs in tissues including the gut, liver and fetal yolk sac. AFP expression may be seen in germ cell neoplasma and in liver carcinoma.
