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-Citrate and NaCl.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 250 μg/mL in sterile PBS.

Background: Angiopoietin-like Protein 4/ANGPTL4

ANGPT-L4, also known as FIAF, FARP, and PGAR, is a 55 kDa glycoprotein secreted by the liver and fat tissue that is structurally related to the angiopoietins. It contains an N‑terminal coiled coil domain and a C‑terminal fibrinogen-like domain which can be proteolytically separated in vivo (1, 2). Mature human ANGPT‑L4 shares 26%‑30% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with ANGPT-L1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7. It shares approximately 75% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat ANGPT‑L4. The coiled coil domain, which is not glycosylated, mediates the formation of variable sized disulfide-linked oligomers (3, 4). This domain directly inhibits lipoprotein lipase, resulting in increased circulating triglyceride levels (5-9). In human, the N-terminal fragment and full length ANGPT-L4 physically associate with HDL (9). In mouse, however, full length ANGPT-L4 associates with HDL, while the N-terminal fragment associates with LDL (9). Circulating ANGPT-L4 is decreased in type II diabetics with a subsequent loss of its normal plasma glucose lowering activity (10). Its expression in adipose tissue is induced by fasting and suppressed by feeding (3, 11). Its expression in both liver and fat is up‑regulated by PPAR alpha, beta, gamma, and δ agonists and down‑regulated by insulin (3, 12, 13). ANGPT-L4 is induced in vascular endothelial cells by hypoxia and in hypoxic areas surrounding tumors (14-16). The full length molecule but not the C-terminal fragment is bound by heparan sulfate proteoglycans and functions as an angiogenesis inhibitor (14, 15).
