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.


Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS, NaCl, and DTT.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 200 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.

Background: NIF

Neutrophil inhibitory factor (NIF) of the dog hookworm, Ancylostoma caninum, is a 41 kDa secreted glycoprotein that is thought to allow the hookworm to evade the innate immune defenses of the host (1, 2). NIF interacts with the leukocyte integrin alpha M beta 2 (CD11b/CD18, also called Mac-1), thus inhibiting mammalian neutrophil adhesion to endothelium (1). The A. caninum NIF cDNA encodes 257 amino acids (aa) including a 17 aa signal sequence and a 240 aa mature protein with 10 cysteine residues and 7 potential N-linked glycosylation sites (1). Incubation of mammalian neutrophils with NIF does not appear to be toxic, but does result in rapid, cation‑dependent, reversible inhibition of alpha M beta 2-mediated adhesion and degranulation (1 - 4). The NIF binding site within the alpha M beta 2 I-domain interferes with activation‑dependent adhesion sites of ligands including ICAM-1/CD54, complement component C3b, and fibrinogen (2, 3). In mouse or guinea pig inflammatory lung injury models, administration of NIF prevented neutrophil-dependent vascular injury (4, 5).
