Changes in the microheterogeneity of mouse α-fetoprotein (MAFP) during fetal development were investigated by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). A total of six distinct isoforms (Iso-1, Iso-2, Iso-3, Iso-4, Iso-5, Iso-6) of the heterogeneous MAFP were resolved from mouse amniotic fluid (MAF). Analysis of MAF collected at various times revealed that these isoforms were accumulated at different stages of the fetal development.
