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.
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.

- Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 300 mM NaCl, 2 mM CaCl2, pH 7.5
- Recombinant B. thetaiotaomicron Heparinase I (rBtHeparinase I) (Catalog # 5830-GH)
- Substrate: Heparin (Tocris, Catalog # 2812), prepare a stock solution in deionized water
- 96 well clear UV-transparent microplate (Corning, Catalog # 3635)
- Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
- Dilute rBtHeparinase I to 1 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
- Dilute Substrate to 0.75 mg/mL in Assay Buffer.
- Load into plate 100 µL of 1 ng/µL rBtHeparinase I, and start the reaction by adding 200 µL of 0.75 mg/mL Substrate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 100 µL of Assay Buffer and 200 µL of 0.75 mg/mL Substrate.
- Read in kinetic mode for 5 minutes at an absorbance of 232 nm.
- Calculate specific activity:
Specific Activity (pmoles/min/µg) =
|Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/M|
|ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)|
*Adjusted for Substrate Blank
**Using the extinction coefficient 3800 M-1cm-1
***Using the path correction 0.92 cm
Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD Per Well:
- rBtHeparinase I: 0.1 µg
- Substrate: 0.5 mg/mL
Background: Heparinase I
Heparin and heparan sulfate are sulfated glycosaminoglycans that share basic carbohydrate backbone structure with alternating uronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine residues (1, 2). Heparin is found in mast cells and has strong anticoagulation properties. Heparan sulfate is found on cell membrane and extracellular matrix and is involved in various biological events from cell growth, adhesion and migration to lipid metabolism. Heparin has a much higher degree of sulfation than heparan sulfate, which can be considered as a polysaccharide with regions similar to heparin interspaced with much less sulfated regions. Both heparin and heparan sulfate can be digested by heparinases, a group of bacterial lyases that are widely used as tools for processing and analyze these polysaccharides. Heparinase I from Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron (3) is a newly discovered heparinase with no activity against chondroitin sulfate and keratan sulfate (4). The enzyme readily releases tri‑sulfated and di-sulfated disaccharides from heparin and heparan sulfate.
