Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human AFM in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Target Data

Function Vitamin E binding protein. May transport vitamin E in body fluids under conditions where the lipoprotein system is not sufficient. May be involved in the regulation and transport of vitamin E at the blood-brain barrier.
Gene References into Functions
  1. The results showed significantly higher serum afamin levels in women with pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes mellitus compared to healthy pregnant women. PMID: 29405972
  2. LDL apheresis moderately decreases the circulating levels of afamin parallel to lowering HDL-C and ApoA1 levels. PMID: 30247793
  3. The concentration of afamin decreases with the severity of alcoholic liver cirrhosis. PMID: 30260179
  4. Afamin binds palmitoylated serine 209 of Wnt3a, providing a structural basis how afamin solubilizes hydrophobic and poorly soluble Wnt proteins. PMID: 29153507
  5. Results provide evidence that afamin could promote glycometabolism by up-regulating the glucose metabolism key enzymes in papillary thyroid carcinoma. PMID: 27329154
  6. Data suggest that up-regulation of AFM levels in serum in women with polycystic ovary syndrome can be used as a biological markers of those women with increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome, especially those with insulin resistance. PMID: 25208973
  7. A linear increase in afamin during pregnancy may serve as basic reference for subsequent investigations of afamin in pregnancy-related disorders. PMID: 24768783
  8. Afamin levels were altered significantly in the peritoneal fluid of women with endometriosis compared with disease-free controls. PMID: 20858448
  9. Binding of bilirubin with human serum albumin was studied by absorption, fluorescence and CD spectroscopy PMID: 12063119
  10. The protein structure of afamin has been determined by homology modeling and its in vitro binding properties confirmed by docking calculations on the proposed structure. PMID: 12463752
  11. vitamin E-binding properties were confirmed; found abundant presence of this protein in plasma, extravascular fluids such as follicular, and cerebrospinal fluids PMID: 15952736
  12. afamin might be a new family member of binding/transport proteins contributing to alpha-tocopherol homeostasis at the blood-brain barrier PMID: 19046407
  13. Reduced Afamin expression is associated with ovarian cancer. PMID: 19336561
