Recombinant Human Carbonic Anhydrase IX Protein, CF
Recombinant Human Carbonic Anhydrase IX Protein, CF Summary
Pro59-Asp414, with a C-terminal 10-His tag
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.

- Load in plate, 50 µL of 20 ng/µL rhCA9, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 2 mM Substrate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 µL Assay Buffer and 50 µL of 2 mM Substrate.
- Read at a wavelength of 400 nm (bottom read) in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
- Calculate specific activity:
Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =
|Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/OD)|
|amount of enzyme (µg)|
*Adjusted for Substrate Blank
**Derived using calibration standard 4-Nitrophenol (Sigma, Catalog # 241326).Per Well:
- rhCA9: 1 µg
- Substrate: 1 mM
Background: Carbonic Anhydrase IX/CA9
Carbonic Anhydrase (CA) catalyzes the reversible reaction of CO2 + H2O = HCO3- + H+, which is fundamental to many processes such as respiration, renal tubular acidification and bone resorption (1-3). Topics in the CA meeting (6th International Conference on the CAs, June 20‑25, 2003, Slovakia) ranged from use of CAs as markers for tumor and hypoxia in clinic, as nutritional supplement in milk, and as a tool for CO2 removal and mosquito control in industry. CA9, also known as membrane antigen MN and renal cell carcinoma (RCC)‑associated antigen G250, is a transmembrane enzyme expressed primarily in carcinoma cells. It is one of the best markers for hypoxia and for RCC (4, 5). rhCA9 corresponds to the extracellular portion of human CA9.
