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 Tris, NaCl, and TCEP.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 500 μg/mL in water.
Shipping The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.

Background: AG-2/AGR2

AG-2 (Anterior gradient protein 2; also AGR2, GOB4 and HPC8) is an 18‑21 kDa member of the Protein disulfide-isomerase (PDI) family of enzymes. PDIs participate in the formation of transient disulfide linkages with molecules which aid in protein folding. Mature human AG-2 is 155 amino acids (aa) in length (aa 21‑175) and has a dimeric thioredoxin fold structure (1) which contains one cysteine (Cys81). It is expressed strongly in secretory cell types, such as prostate epithelium, small intestine goblet, trachea and lung, and is also expressed in estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer cell lines (2). Although AG-2 possesses a signal sequence, it appears to be rarely secreted, instead being found in the ER due the presence of a KTEL ER retention signal at its C-terminus (3). Over aa 21‑175, human AG-2 shares 94% aa identity with mouse AG-2. Over expressed in colorectal cancer stem cells, AG-2 is a marker regulated by the canonical Wnt/ beta -catenin pathway, AG-2 levels combined with elevated levels of beta -catenin are shown to indicate lower survival prognosis (4). Further, Wnt11-mediated signaling pathway has been implicated in secreted AG-2's role to promote metastasis of colorectal cancer (5). In prostate cancer, marker RAD9A affects the availability of AG-2. When added to RAD9A-depleted PC-3 cells, addition of AG-2 restores cell migration and adhesion properties (6). Additionally, AG-2 has been linked to pituitary adenomas as a biomarker (7).
