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 Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in MES, NaCl and CaCl2.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 100 μg/mL in sterile 25 mM MES, 150 mM NaCl and 5 mM CaCl2, pH 6.0.
Shipping The product is shipped with polar packs. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 6 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

Assay Procedure

  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 10 mM CaCl2, 150 mM NaCl, 0.05% Brij-35, pH 7.5 (TCNB)
  • Recombinant Human

    Coagulation Factor Xa (rhFactor Xa) (Catalog # 1063-SE)

  • Substrate: Fluorogenic Peptide Substrate II, MCA-Arg-Pro-Lys-Pro-Val-Glu-NVAL-Trp-Arg-Lys(DNP)-NH2 (Catalog # ES002)
  • F16 Black Maxisorp Plate (Nunc, Catalog # 475515)
  • Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhFactor Xa to 0.4 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 20 µM in Assay Buffer.
  3. Load 50 µL of the 0.4 ng/µL rhFactor Xa into plate and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 20 µM Substrate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 µL Assay Buffer and 50 µL of 20 µM Substrate without any rhFactor Xa.
  4. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 320 nm and 405 nm (top read), respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  5. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/RFU)

amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank
     **Derived using calibration standard MCA-Pro-Leu-OH (Bachem, Catalog # M-1975)

Per Well:
  • rhFactor Xa: 0.02 µg
  • Substrate: 10 µM

Background: Coagulation Factor X

As the only known physiological activator of thrombin, Factor X is a vitamin K-dependent plasma protease that plays a pivotal role in blood coagulation. Human Factor X is initially synthesized in the liver as a single-chain precursor of 488 amino acid residues with a signal peptide and a pro region (residues 1‑40). Both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways activate Factor X to Xa, which consists of light (residues 41‑179) and heavy (residues 235‑488) chains linked by a disulfide bond. The light chain contains a Gla and two EGF-like domains and the heavy chain corresponds to the serine protease domain. The full-length human Factor X was expressed and the pro enzyme was purified and activated. The active protease (rhXa) was further purified and analyzed for its activity towards either peptides or proteins containing a Xa cleavage site. In addition to the activity described in the Activity Assay Protocol, rhFX also be used to cleave fusion proteins containing a Factor Xa cleavage site. The conditions for the optimal cleavage of a particular fusion protein, such as the molar ratio between rhFX and the protein and time and temperature of incubation, are protein-dependent and need to be individually determined.
