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 MOPS, NaCl and CHAPS.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 100 μg/mL in sterile PBS.

Background: Angiopoietin-like Protein 4/ANGPTL4

Angiopoietin-like 4 (ANGPTL4), also known as FIAF, FARP, and PGAR, is a 55 kDa glycoprotein secreted by the liver and fat tissue. It is structurally related to the angoipoietins and contains an N-terminal coiled coil domain and a C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain which can be proteolytically separated in vivo (1). Mature human ANGPTL4 shares 26%-30% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with ANGPTL1, 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 (2). This domain directly inhibits lipoprotein lipase, resulting in increased circulating triglyceride levels (3, 4). In humans, the N-terminal fragment and full length ANGPTL4 physically associate with HDL (4). In mouse, however, full length ANGPTL4 associates with HDL, while the N-terminal fragment associates with LDL (4). Circulating ANGPTL4 is decreased in type II diabetics with a subsequent loss of its normal plasma glucose lowering activity (5). Its expression in adipose tissue is induced by fasting and suppressed by feeding (6). In hypoxic areas, ANGPTL4 is induced in both vascular endothelial cells and tumor cells (7, 8). The N-terminal fragment can function as an angiogenesis inhibitor (7, 8). In contrast, the C-terminal fragment modulates cell adhesion through interactions with heparan sulfate proteoglycans, Integrins  beta 1 and beta 5, Vitronectin, and Fibronectin, thereby promoting keratinocyte migration and wound healing (7, 9, 10). ANGPTL4 additionally enhances the survival of hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cells (11, 12). The expression of an undersialylated form of ANGPTL4 in renal podocytes contributes to proteinuria and nephrotic syndrome (13).
