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.

Background: Dectin-2/CLEC6A

Dectin-2, also known as CLEC6A, CLECSF10, and NKCL, belongs to the C-type lectin family of transmembrane immune regulatory glycoproteins. Dectin-2, plus CLEC4A-E constitute a subgroup of molecules that exhibit approximately 40% amino acid (aa) sequence identity in their extracellular domains (ECD), and have a conserved cysteine spacing in their carbohydrate recognition domains (CRD) (1, 2). Mature human Dectin-2 is a type II transmembrane protein with a short cytoplasmic tail, a transmembrane segment, and a 168 aa ECD with a stalk region and one CRD (3, 4). Within the ECD, human Dectin-2 shares 71% and 75% aa sequence identity with bovine and mouse Dectin-2, respectively. An alternately spliced beta isoform has a deletion of portions of the transmembrane and cytoplasmic regions (5). Full length Dectin-2 is a 27 kDa molecule that is expressed on monocytes, tissue macrophages, and activated CD4+ T cells (4 - 6). The CRD of Dectin-2 contains an EPN motif which is characteristic of calcium-dependent mannose-binding lectins. Dectin-2 selectively interacts with high mannose structures in the Man9GlcNAc2 configuration (7). It mediates the recognition of a variety of microorganisms, particularly the filamentous forms of yeast and fungii (7, 8). The short cytoplasmic tail does not contain signaling motifs but mediates association with the ITAM-containing Fc receptor gamma subunit on macrophages (8). Ligation of Dectin-2 induces tyrosine phosphorylation of the gamma subunit, activation of NF kappa B, and enhanced release of TNF-alpha and IL-1ra (8). Macrophage Dectin-2 is upregulated in vivo by inflammatory stimuli and UV-B irradiation (5, 6, 9). Dectin-2 is known to participate in UV-induced immunosuppression by interacting with CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells, which then induce dendritic cells to release IL-4, IL-10, and TGF-beta (10).
