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 HEPES, NaCl, TCEP, PEG and Trehalose.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 500 μg/mL in water.
Shipping The product is shipped with polar packs. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.

Background: Galectin-3C

Human Galectin-3, also known as Mac-2, L29, CBP35, and epsilon BP, is classified as a chimeric member of the Galectin superfamily and contains one carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) linked to a nonlectin domain (1, 2). The truncated form, Galectin-3C, which consists of the carboxy-terminal amino acid residues of Galectin-3 and lacks the N-terminal domain, has been shown to inhibit tumor growth and metastasis (3, 4). Within this region, human Galectin-3C shares 87% and 83% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse and rat Galectin-3C, respectively. Galectin-3C has been found to interact with Integrin beta 1 in Hela cell lateral mobility assays (5). It can also be found endogenously attached to cell surface of neutrophils (6). Galectin-3C has been shown to enhance the activity of cancer therapy drugs as well as inhibiting tubule formation during angiogenesis (3).
