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.

Assay Procedure

Materials
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 250 mM NaCl, pH 8.0
  • Recombinant Human Complement Component C1s (rhC1s) (Catalog # 2060-SE)
  • Substrate: N-Carbobenzyloxy-Lys-ThioBenzyl ester (Z-K-SBzl) (Bachem, Catalog # M-1300), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • 5,5’Dithio-bis(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) (Sigma, Catalog # D-8130), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • 96-well Clear Plate (Costar, Catalog # 92592)
  • Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhC1s to 0.2 ng/μL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 1000 μM containing 200 μM DTNB in Assay Buffer.
  3. Load in plate, 50 μL of 0.2 ng/μL rhC1s, and start the reaction by adding 50 μL of 1000 μM Substrate/200 μM DTNB mixture to wells. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 μL Assay Buffer and 50 μL of 1000 μM Substrate/200 μM DTNB mixture.
  4. Read in kinetic mode for 5 minutes at absorbance of 405 nM.
  5. Calculate Specific Activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/mol
ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank
      **Using the extinction coefficient 13260 M-1cm-1
      ***Using the path correction 0.320 cm
     Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD Per Well:
  • rhC1s: 0.010 μg
  • DTNB: 100 μM
  • Substrate: 500 μM

Background: Complement Component C1s

The classical complement pathway plays a major role in innate immunity against infection. This pathway is triggered by C1, a multimolecular complex composed of the recognition protein C1q and two serine proteases, C1r and C1s. Following the C1q recognition, C1r is autoactivated, and in turn activates C1s, which cleaves C4 and C2, the C1 substrates (1). Both C1r and C1s activation involve cleavage of a specific Arg-Ile bond, converting single-chain proenzymes into active proteases of disulfide bond-linked chains (A and B) (2). The A chains contain multiple domains in the order of CUB1-EGF-CUB2-CCP1-CCP2-Activation Peptide. The B chains contain the serine protease catalytic domain. The full-length (amino acid residues 1-688) of human C1s was expressed (3-5). The purified protein corresponded to the processed active form, with A and B chains starting at residue Glu16 and Ile438, respectively.
