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 Supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris and NaCl.

Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 6 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after opening.

Assay Procedure

  • Assay Buffer: 0.1 M MES, pH 6.0
  • Recombinant E. faecalis O-Glycosidase (Catalog # 8886-GH)
  • Substrate: p-Nitrophenyl galacto-N-bioside (Sigma, Catalog # N3016), 2 mM stock in deionized water
  • NaOH, 2 M stock in deionized water
  • 96-well Clear Plate (Catalog # DY990)
  • Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rE. faecalis O-Glycosidase to 1 µg/mL in Assay buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 0.2 mM in Assay buffer.
  3. Load 50 µL of 1 µg/mL rE. faecalis O-Glycosidase in plate, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 2 mM Substrate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 µL Assay Buffer and 50 µL Substrate.
  4. Incubate sealed plate at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  5. Prepare 0.5 M NaOH in deionized water.
  6. Add 100 µL of 0.5 M NaOH to each well to stop the reactions and develop the color.
  7. Read at 405 nm (absorbance) in endpoint mode.
  8. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Abs* (OD) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/mol
Inc. time (min) x epsilon ** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

*Adjusted for Substrate Blank.
**Using the extinction coefficient 18100 M-1cm-1.
***Using the path correction 0.6 cm (based on a 0.0002 L volume).

Per Reaction:

  • rE. faecalis O-Glycosidase: 0.05 µg
  • Substrate: 0.1 mM

Background: O-Glycosidase

Enterococcus faecalis O-Glycosidase, also known as endo-alpha -N-Acetylgalactosaminidase, removes O-glycans from glycoproteins. It is broadly active on Core-1, Core-2, Core-3 and Gal-Core-2 structures, which releases the following oligosaccharides, Gal beta 1-3GalNAc, Gal beta 1-3[GlcNAc beta 1-6]GalNAc, GlcNAc beta 1-3GalNAc, Gal beta 1-3[Gal beta 1-3GlcNAc beta 1-6]GalNAc, respectively (1). The enzyme is most active on Core 1, followed by Core 3, then Core 2 structures. The enzyme also has transglycosylation activity and can transfers Core-1 and Core-2 glycans to 1-alkanols, generating alkyl-oligosaccharides. Because the O-Glycosidase is not active on sialylated O-glycans, it is necessary to treat glycoproteins concomitantly with a neuraminidase for deglycosylation purpose (2).
