Recombinant Human HS2ST1 Protein, CF
Recombinant Human HS2ST1 Protein, CF Summary
Met59-Asn356, with an N-terminal 6-His tag
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.

Background: Heparan Sulfate 2-O-Sulfotransferase 1/HS2ST1
Heparan sulfate is a highly sulfated polysaccharide found on the cell surface and within the extracellular matrix. Typically, it is covalently attached to the protein core of proteoglycans, such as syndecans and glypicans. Heparin, on the other hand, can be considered as a highly sulfated version of heparan sulfate that is predominantly found in mast cells. Both heparin and heparan sulfate contain disaccharide repeats of uronic acid and N‑acetylglucosamine and are modified by the same sulfotransferases (1, 2). The uronic acid residues are either glucuronic acid or iduronic acid and maybe sulfated at the 2-O position by heparan sulfate 2‑O sulfotransferase 1 (HS2ST1) (3, 4). HS2ST1 physically interacts in the Golgi apparatus with glucuronyl c5-epimerase (5), which catalyzes the conversion of glucuronic acid to iduronic acid (6). As a consequence, 2-O sulfation predominantly occurs on iduronic acids naturally and overexpression of HS2ST1 alone causes an increase in 2-O sulfation on glucuronic acid (7). The enzyme activity of the recombinant human HS2ST1 was measured using a PAP-specific phosphatase-coupled sulfotransferase assay (8).
