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 Supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution in HEPES, NaCl, DTT and Glycerol.

Assay Procedure

  • Jurkat E6 wild type cell extracts (see supplementary methods for preparation)
  • Extraction Buffer: 50 mM HEPES, 10 mM KCl, 5 mM EGTA, 1 mM MgCl2, 0.2% CHAPS, 0.2 mM DTT, pH 7.5
  • Assay Buffer: 10 mM HEPES, 0.5 mM EGTA, 5 mM DTT, 10% Glycerol, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Human cIAP‑2/HIAP‑1 (rhcIAP-2) (Catalog # 817-P2)
  • Cytochrome C, Bovine heart (Sigma, Catalog # C3131), 2 mg/mL stock in deionized water
  • dATP (Sigma, Catalog # D6500), 10 mM stock adjusted to pH 7.5 with NaOH
  • Cell Extracts from Jurkat E6 wild type cells (see above protocol)
  • Substrate: Ac-Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-AFC (DEVD-AFC) (MP Biomedicals, Catalog # AFC138), 10 mM stock in DMSO

  • Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
Note: All reagents and assay components should be kept on ice until use.
  1. Thaw cell extracts and centrifuge in a microcentrifuge at 14,000 rpms for 5 minutes at 4 °C. Transfer supernatants to chilled tubes and use within 1 hour.
  2. Prepare a curve of rhcIAP-2 (MW: 71,000 Da) in Extraction Buffer. Make the following serial dilutions: 2500, 1500, 500, 250, 50, 25, and 5 nM. Note: High point may not be achievable depending on lot received.
  3. Prepare the activator mixture by combining equal volumes of 2 mg/mL Cytochrome C and 10 mM dATP for working concentrations of 1 mg/mL and 5 mM, respectively.
  4. Prepare reaction mixtures in tubes by combining 10 μL of each rhcIAP-2 curve dilution, 10 μL of cell extract supernatant, and 5 μL of the cytochrome C/dATP activator mixture. Also, prepare the following controls:
    1. Total Control: 10 μL of Extraction Buffer, 10 μL of cell extract supernatant, and 5 μL of the cytochrome C/dATP activator mixture.
    2. Inactive Control: 15 μL of Extraction Buffer and 10 μL of cell extract supernatant.  The total reaction volume is 25 μL.
  5. Incubate for 60 minutes at 30 °C.
  6. After incubation, add 100 μL of Assay Buffer to each vial for a five-fold dilution. Mix briefly.
  7. Dilute Substrate to 100 μM in Assay Buffer.
  8. In a plate load 50 μL of diluted incubated reaction mixtures, and start the reaction by adding 50 μL of 100 μM Substrate.
  9. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 400 nm and 505 nm, respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  10. Derive the 50% inhibiting concentration (IC50) of rhcIAP-2 by plotting normalized activity vs. reaction concentration of rhcIAP-2 (step 4) with Semi-Log Fitting [y = A + B * Log(x)].  Solve for x when y = 50.
  11. Normalized activity may be determined using the following equation:
  12.      % Normalized Activity = Sample (RFU/min) - Inactive Control** (RFU/min) x 100%
    Total Control (RFU/min)
Per Reaction:
  • rhcIAP-2 curve:  1000, 600, 200, 100, 20, 10, and 2 nM
  • Substrate: 50 μM

Background: cIAP-2/HIAP-1

cIAP-2 (also known as MIHC and HIAP-1) is a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) family of proteins that inhibit the proteolytic activity of mature caspases. cIAP-2 has 3 BIR (baculovirus inhibitor of apoptosis) domains, a RING finger domain, and a caspase recruitment domain (CARD). cIAP-2 inhibits caspases through the direct interaction of its BIR domain with the active caspase. Caspase activity may be restored through interactions with the Reaper like motif on mitochondrial proteins such as SMAC/Diablo or HtrA2/Omi. cIAP-2 is reported to be cleaved by HtrA2/Omi.
