Recombinant Human DCC Protein, CF Summary

Product Specifications

>90%, by SDS-PAGE with silver staining.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Human DCC was immobilized at 1 μg/mL (100 μL/well), it binds Recombinant Mouse Netrin-1 (Catalog # 1109-N1) . The concentration of Recombinant Mouse Netrin-1 that produces 50% of the optimal binding response is approximately 5-30 ng/mL.
Human embryonic kidney cell, HEK293-derived human DCC protein
Phe32-Asn1097, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
Accession #
N-terminal Sequence
Predicted Molecular Mass
119 kDa
123-138 kDa, reducing conditions

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 PBS.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 400 μg/mL in PBS.
Shipping The product is shipped with polar packs. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.

Background: DCC

Deleted in Colorectal Cancer (DCC) was originally identified as a putative tumor suppressor gene that is down-regulated in more than 70% of colorectal cancers (1). DCC is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily (2, 3). It contains an extracellular domain (ECD) composed of four Ig-like domains and six fibronectin type III repeats, a transmembrane region, and a cytoplasmic domain (1, 4-6). The ECD of human DCC shares 97% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat DCC. In adults, DCC is expressed most abundantly in brain tissue, but it is also expressed at low levels in multiple other tissues (4, 6). DCC is a receptor for Netrin-1 and is important for dopaminergic neuronal precursor migration, axon guidance, and axon arborization (2, 7-10). Binding of DCC by Draxin, at a site distinct from the Netrin-1 binding site, results in the inhibition of neurite outgrowth (11). Signaling downstream of DCC may also be required for the confinement of central axons to the central nervous system (12). DCC regulates apoptosis as a dependence receptor and induces apoptosis in the absence of Netrin-1 binding (13-15). DCC has been shown to inhibit metastasis, and loss of DCC’s apoptotic activity promotes tumorigenesis in mice, providing in vivo evidence that DCC is a tumor suppressor gene (16-18).
