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.
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.

Both Biotinylated Recombinant Human B7-H3 Fc Chimera (Catalog # BT1027) and Recombinant Human B7-H3 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 1027-B3) inhibit anti-CD3 antibody induced proliferation of stimulated human T cells. The ED50 for this effect is 3-12 µg/mL. The similarity in activity highlights that the biotinylated protein is fully functional.
Human B7 homolog 3 (B7-H3) is a member of the B7 family of immune proteins that provide signals for regulating immune responses (1‑3). Other family members include B7-1, B7-2, B7-H2, PD-L1 (B7-H1), and PD-L2. B7 proteins are immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily members with extracellular Ig-V-like and Ig-C-like domains and short cytoplasmic domains. Among the family members, they share about 20-40% amino acid (aa) sequence identity. The cloned human B7-H3 cDNA encodes a 316 aa type I membrane precursor protein with a putative 28 aa signal peptide, a 217 aa extracellular region containing one V-like and one C-like Ig domain, a transmembrane region, and a 45 aa cytoplasmic domain. An isoform of human B7-H3 containing a four-Ig-like domain extracellular region has also been identified. Human B7-H3 is not expressed on resting B cells, T cells, monocytes or dendritic cells, but is induced on dendritic cells and monocytes by inflammatory cytokines. B7-H3 expression is also detected on various normal tissues and in some tumor cell lines. Human B7-H3 does not bind any known members of the CD28 family of immunoreceptors. However, B7-H3 has been shown to bind an unidentified counter-receptor on activated T cells to costimulate the proliferation of CD4+ or CD8+ T cells. B7-H3 has also been found to enhance the induction of primary cytotoxic T lymphocytes and stimulate IFN-gamma production (1-3).
