Recombinant Human ENPP-1 Protein, CF
Recombinant Human ENPP-1 Protein, CF Summary
Accession # Q13822
Accession # P22413
Accession # Q13822
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.
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.

Ectonucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase 1 (ENPP-1) is a transmembrane glycoprotein that hydrolyzes nucleotides and nucleotide derivatives with the formation of nucleotide-5’-monophosphates. It is inserted into the plasma membrane by an N‑terminal transmembrane domain. Human ENPP-1 has a small N-terminal cytoplasmic domain and a large C-terminal region containing two somatomedin B-like domains, a catalytic domain and a nuclease-like domain in the extracellular space (1). Defects in the ENPP-1 gene cause arterial calcification and bone mineralization abnormalities (2). ENPP-1 polymorphism or overexpression is also associated with obesity, type II diabetes and insulin resistance, which makes modulation of ENPP-1 activity one of the targets to treat insulin resistance and related diseases (1). The recombinant hybrid enzyme recombinant human ENPP-1 consists of N-terminal somatomedin B-like domains of ENPP-2, the central catalytic phosphodiesterase domain of ENPP-1 and the C‑terminal nuclease-like domain of ENPP-2. It has been reported that this hybrid construct generates an enzyme that has higher levels of ENPP-1 activity than the wild type ENPP-1 and is specific for the ENPP-1 substrate (3).
