Carrier Free

What does CF mean?

CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.

What formulation is right for me?

In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.


Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 500 μg/mL in PBS.
Shipping The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

R&D Systems proteins are almost always sold with a bioassay to indicate activity. However, we recognize that sometimes proteins might be novel, and their bioactivity may not be well understood. In addition, some researchers may wish to use polypeptides to make antibodies. To facilitate the advancement of new science, we now offer our Innovator Series of proteins.

Background: Zika Virus (MR 766) NS1

Zika Virus non-structural protein 1 (ZIKV NS1) is an approximately 48 kDa viral glycoprotein (1). Zika Virus is a mosquito-borne flavivirus and has been implicated an association with neonatal microcephaly and neurological disorders such as Guillain-Barré syndrome (2). ZIKV strain MR 766 was isolated from monkey host.  ZIKV NS1 is a multifunctional virulence factor. The glycosylated NS1 exists as a membrane-associated dimer after translocation into the endoplasmic reticulum lumen, where it is essential for viral genome replication (1, 2). Infected cells secrete NS1 as a lipoprotein, which is involved in immune evasion and pathogenesis via interaction with components of the innate and adaptive immune systems (1, 2). Mature ZIKV NS1 contains 352 amino acids (aa) and has a hexameric conformation consisting of three dimers to form a symmetric barrel shape (1). It has high structural similarity to other flavivirus NS1 proteins, such as DENV and WNV (2, 3). Mature NS1 of ZIKV strain MR 766 shares 98% aa sequence identity with NS1 of ZIKV strain H/PF/2013 that was isolated from human host.
