Product Datasheets

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.

Background: BMP-2/BMP-6 Heterodimer

Bone Morphogenetic Protein 6 (BMP-6), also known as Vgr-1, and BMP-2 are members of the BMP family of structurally and functionally related proteins and represent a subfamily of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta ) superfamily. BMPs are involved in a wide range of processes including embryogenesis, tissue morphogenesis, cell differentiation and migration, and tumorigenesis. Cellular responses to BMPs are mediated by hetero‑oligomeric complexes of type I and type II serine/threonine kinase receptors (1 - 4). Human BMP-2 is synthesized as a 396 amino acid (aa) preproprotein that contains a 23 aa signal sequence, a 259 aa prosegment, and a 114 aa mature region (5). Human BMP-6 is synthesized as a 513 aa precursor protein that contains a 20 aa signal sequence, a 354 aa prosegment, and a 139 aa mature region (6). BMP prosegments are removed by proteolysis, enabling the glycosylated 18 kDa mature BMPs to form active disulfide-linked homodimers or heterodimers (1, 2). Mature human BMP-2 shares 100% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat BMP-2, and mature human BMP-6 shares 96% and 98% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat BMP-6, respectively. They share 48% aa sequence identity with each other. Both BMP-2 and BMP-6 induce osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiation in mesenchymal stem cells (4). Heterodimers of BMP-2 and BMP-6 show increased potency at inducing osteoblastic calcium deposition, chondrogenesis, and in vivo bone formation compared to either BMP-2 or BMP-6 homodimers (7, 8). BMP-2/6 heterodimers also show increased activity at inducing trophoectodermal and endodermal differentiation of embryonic stem cells compared to either homodimer (9).
