Recombinant Human Fibronectin, ACFP Protein Summary

Product Specifications

Purity
>90%, by SDS-PAGE visualized with Silver Staining and quantitative densitometry by Coomassie® Blue Staining.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Activity
Measured by its ability to support cell attachment and spreading when used as a substratum for cell culture. In this application, the recommended concentration for this effect is 1-5 μg/cm2.

Fibronectin can also be added to the media to support cell spreading at a concentration of 0.5-50 μg/mL.

Spodoptera frugiperda, Sf 9 (baculovirus)-derived human Fibronectin protein
Met1-Pro1908, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
Produced in an animal component free process (ACFP).
Accession #
N-terminal Sequence
Analysis
No results obtained: Gln32 predicted, sequencing might be blocked
Predicted Molecular Mass
206.7 kDa
SDS-PAGE
190-210 kDa, reducing conditions

ACFP4305 (carrier free)

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: Fibronectin

Fibronectin (FN) is a large, modular glycoprotein that generates a polymeric fibrillar network in the extracellular matrix (ECM), and forms soluble, disulfide-linked dimeric protomers in plasma and other body fluids (1, 2). Fibronectin is a ligand for many molecules, including fibrin, heparin, chondroitin sulfate, collagen/gelatin, and integrins. It is involved in multiple cellular processes such as cell adhesion/migration, blood clotting, morphogenesis, tissue repair, and cell signaling. Fibronectin functions are mediated by the insoluble polymeric fibrillar network. Conversion of soluble Fibronectin to Fibronectin fibrils in the ECM is initiated by binding to cell surface integrins, resulting in exposure of cryptic epitopes necessary for polymerization (1). Fibronectin is made up of three types of homologous structural motifs termed FN type I, type II, and type III repeats (3-5). Alternative splicing generates multiple isoforms of Fibronectin which may have insertions of extra type III domains (EDA and EDB) or alteration of the type III connecting segment (IIICS) (5). Differential splicing within the IIICS domain determines the presence of CS1 and CS2 sequences, and its sensitivity to proteases (6, 7). The tilt angle between type III domains #9 and #10 (which contains an RGD motif) determines integrin binding affinity, suggesting how structural differences between fibrillar and soluble Fibronectin may influence their function (8). From the N-terminus to the furin cleavage site at amino acid 1908, human Fibronectin shares 92% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat Fibronectin.

Manufacturing Specifications

Animal Component-Free Process (ACFP) Manufacturing Conditions
R&D Systems Animal Component-Free Process (ACFP) recombinant proteins are expressed in an animal-free certified Sf 9 insect cell line using dedicated animal-free raw materials and labware. Production and purification procedures use equipment and media that are confirmed animal-free but performed outside our dedicated animal-free laboratories. Every stage of the manufacturing process follows R&D Systems' stringent Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The certified Sf 9 insect cell bank has undergone extensive testing to certify the lack of cytopathogens by screening for various viruses, Mycoplasma, and Spiroplasmas using both in vitro and in vivo testing methods. For ex vivo research or bioproduction, additional documentation can be provided.
