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 HEPES, NaCl, Glycerol.

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: 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Human ABP1/AOC1 (rhABP1) (Catalog # 8298-AO)
  • Coupling Enzyme:  Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) (250-330 U/mg) (Sigma, Catalog # P8375), 250 units/mL stock in 0.1 M Sodium Phosphate, pH 8.0
  • Substrate Component 1: Histamine (Sigma, Catalog # H7250), 20 mM stock in deionized water
  • Substrate Component 2: Amplex Ultra Red (AUR) (Molecular Probes, Catalog # A36006), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • F16 Black Maxisorp Plate (Nunc, Catalog # 475515)
  • Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhABP1 to 1 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Prepare a Substrate Mixture containing 10 µM Histamine, 2 units/mL HRP, and 100 µM AUR in Assay Buffer.
  3. Load 50 µL of 1 ng/µL rhABP1 into wells of a plate and start the reactions by adding 50 μL of Substrate Mixture. Include a Substrate Blank containing Assay Buffer instead of rhABP1.
  4. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 544 nm and 590 nm (top read), respectively in kinetic mode. Note:  A cutoff must be set manually at a wavelength of 570 nm.
  5. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/RFU)
amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank
     **Derived using a fluorescent standard prepared by incubating 50 µM AUR, 1 unit/mL HRP, 5 µM Histamine, and a curve of Hydrogen Peroxide (Sigma, Catalog # H1009) in Assay Buffer. Use this oxidized AUR curve to determine the conversion factor.

Per Well:
  • rhABP1: 0.05 µg
  • Histamine: 5 µM
  • HRP: 1 unit/mL
  • AUR: 50 µM

Background: ABP1/AOC1

Amiloride binding protein (ABP1), also known as diamine oxidase (DAO) and amine oxidase copper domain-containing protein 1 (AOC1), is an approximately 110 kDa member of the copper-containing amine oxidase family (1, 2). ABP1 is a glycosylated enzyme that forms disulfide-linked homodimers (3). It is stored in cytoplasmic granules of epithelial cells in the kidney, placenta, uterus, lung, and intestine (1, 4), and its extracellular release can be induced by heparin (5). ABP1 exhibits a substrate preference for histamine and putrescine, generating hydrogen peroxide and ammonia in an oxidative deamination reaction (3). ABP1 activity plays an important role in the catabolism of histamine and other bioactive polyamines (6, 7). Deficiencies in ABP1 can result in histaminosis or dietary histamine intolerance (8, 9).
