Recombinant Human CHST6 Protein, CF
Recombinant Human CHST6 Protein, CF Summary
Ser27-Asn395, with an N-terminal 6-His tag
Accession # NP_067628
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.

- Dilute 1 mM Phosphate Standard provided by the Universal Sulfotransferase Kit by adding 40 µL of the 1 mM Phosphate Standard to 360 µL of Assay Buffer for a 100 µM stock.
- Prepare standard curve by performing six one-half serial dilutions of the 100 µM Phosphate stock in Assay Buffer. The standard curve has a range of 0.078 to 5 nmol per well.
- Prepare reaction mixture containing 0.4 mM PAPS, 200 mM GlcNAc, and 20 μg/mL Coupling Phosphatase 3 in Assay Buffer.
- Dilute rhCHST6 to 40 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
- Load 50 µL of each dilution of the standard curve into a plate. Include a curve blank containing 50 μL of Assay Buffer.
- Load 25 µL of the 40 µg/mL rhCHST6 into the plate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 25 µL of Assay Buffer.
- Add 25 µL of reaction mixture to the wells, excluding the standard curve.
- Cover the plate with a plate sealer and incubate at 37 °C for 20 minutes.
- Add 30 µL of the Malachite Green Reagent A to all wells. Mix briefly.
- Add 100 µL of deionized water to all wells. Mix briefly.
- Add 30 µL of the Malachite Green Reagent B to all wells. Mix and incubate for 20 minutes at room temperature.
- Read plate at 620 nm (absorbance) in endpoint mode.
- Calculate specific activity:
Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =
|Phosphate released* (nmol) x (1000 pmol/nmol)|
|Incubation time (min) x amount of enzyme (µg)|
*Derived from the phosphate standard curve using linear or 4-parameter fitting and adjusted for Control.Per Reaction:
- rhCHST6: 1.0 μg
- Coupling Phosphatase 3: 0.5 μg
- PAPS: 0.2 mM
- GlcNAc: 100 mM
Background: Carbohydrate Sulfotransferase 6/CHST6
The CHST family is comprised of 14 genes in humans. All members of this family are Golgi-localized type II membrane proteins. Only the luminal and enzymatic domain is expressed in each of R&D Systems recombinant CHST proteins. These enzymes transfer sulfate (i.e., sulfonate) onto the 6-O or 4-O positions of GalNAc, Gal and GlcNAc residues on glycoproteins, proteoglycans and glycolipids (1). This sulfation often creates specific epitopes that can be recognized by extracellular matrix proteins, cell surface receptors and viruses (2). CHST6, also designated as corneal N-acetylglucosamine-6-O-sulfotransferase (3) or N-acetylglucosamine 6‑O‑sulfotransferase 5 (1), transfers sulfate to position 6 of non‑reducing GlcNAc residues of keratan sulfate found in the corneal stroma. It also acts on the non‑reducing terminal GlcNAc residues of carbohydrate substrates that have poly-N-acetyllactosamine structures (1). Defects in CHST6 cause macular corneal dystrophy, an autosomal recessive disease characterized by corneal opacities (3). The activity of the recombinant CHST6 has been measured with a phosphatase-coupled sulfotransferase assay (4).
