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 250 μg/mL in sterile PBS.

Background: E-Cadherin

E-Cadherin/Cadherin-1, also known as Uvomorulin in the mouse and rat, is a 120 kDa member of the Cadherin family of cell surface glycoproteins that mediate cell adhesion (1). Human E-Cadherin shares 81% amino acid sequence identity with the rat and mouse proteins (2). It is a single-pass transmembrane protein that mediates calcium-dependent epithelial cell adhesion. E-Cadherin has five extracellular EC domains that form homophilic cis-clusters between adjacent epithelial cells and trans-clusters within the same cell. E-Cadherin clusters are critical components of adherens junctions between epithelial cells and act in the formation and maintenance of the epithelial cell barrier (3, 4). The intracellular domain of E-Cadherin binds to the Catenin cytoskeletal complex, which includes p120 Catenin, beta-Catenin, alpha-Catenin, and Vinculin. E-Cadherin expression is critical for epithelial tissue homeostasis. Decreased E-Cadherin is associated with physiological and pathological epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and cell migration, and E-Cadherin loss contributes to cancer metastasis (5). The extracellular E-Cadherin N-terminal domain can be cleaved by several proteases and is released as a soluble factor that enhances cancer cell motility and EGFR-dependent survival and proliferation (6).
