Product Datasheets

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.

Background: KGF/FGF-7

KGF (keratinocyte growth factor), also known as FGF-7, is induced in mesenchymal cells by inflammation or tissue damage. It functions as a paracrine factor during wound healing by inducing the proliferation of nearby epithelial cells. KGF plays a role in kidney morphogenesis, hair follicle development, and keratinocyte differentiation. It signals only through the IIIb splice form of the tyrosine kinase receptor, FGF R2 (IIIb)/KGF R.
