Serhat Partalcı,Ayşen Yarat,Kılış Aydınlı,Doğan Cantekin,Nesrin Emekli
Amniotic fluids obtained from 56 pregnant women in different gestational weeks were investigated. Total protein level were determined by the Lowry method and by Laemli SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis carried out on amniotic fluid samples.

No correlation was found between gestational age and albumin nor low or high molecular weights proteins. Albumin increased linearly with gestational week. Low molecular weight proteins showed a significant decrease with gestational week where as high molecular proteins increased although not significantly. Keywords : Amniotic fluid, protein, electrophoresis
