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.

Assay Procedure

Materials
  • Activation Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 10 mM CaCl2, 150 mM NaCl, pH 7.5 (TCN)
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 1 M NaCl, 10 mM EDTA, pH 8.5
  • Recombinant Human Kallikrein 11 (rhKLK11) (Catalog # 1595-SE)
  • Bacterial Thermolysin (Thermolysin) (Catalog # 3097-ZN)
  • EDTA (Sigma, Catalog # E-4884)
  • Fluorogenic Peptide Substrate: Z-Lys-SBzl (Bachem, Catalog # M-1300), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • 5,5’-dithio-bis (2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) (Sigma, Catalog # D-8130), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • 96-well Clear Plate (Costar, Catalog # 92592)
  • Plate reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhKLK11 to 200 µg/mL in Activation Buffer.
  2. Dilute Thermolysin to 20 μg/mL in Activation Buffer.
  3. Combine equal volumes of 200 µg/mL rhKLK11 and 20 µg/mL Thermolysin.
  4. Incubate at 37 °C for 15 minutes.
  5. Stop Thermolysin activity by adding EDTA to a final concentration of 10 mM.
  6. Dilute incubated rhKLK11 to 2 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  7. Prepare Substrate Mixture containing 600 μM Substrate and 200 μM DTNB in Assay Buffer.
  8. Load into a clear plate 50 µL of the 2 ng/µL rhKLK11, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of Substrate Mixture. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 µL Assay Buffer and 50 µL of Substrate Mixture.
  9. Read at a wavelength of 405 nm (bottom read) in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  10. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/mol
ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank 
     **Using the extinction coefficient 13260 M-1cm-1 
     ***Using the path correction 0.320 cm
     Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD Per Well:
  • rhKLK11: 0.1 µg
  • Substrate: 300 µM
  • DTNB: 100 µM

Background: Kallikrein 11

As a member of human tissue kallikrein family, Kallikrein 11, also known as hippostasin, trypsin-like serine protease and PRSS20, is encoded by the KLK11 gene (1). Two alternatively spliced forms exist, resulting in 250 (isoform 1) and 282 (isoform 2) amino acid sequences,respectively (2-5). Isoform 1 consists of a signal peptide (residues 1-18), a short pro peptide (residues 19-21) and the mature chain (residues 22-250). Isoform 2 is identical to isoform 1, except that a 32 amino acid segment is inserted in isoform 2 before residue 1 in isoform 1. Isoform 1 is predominantly expressed in brain whereas isoform 2 is preferentially expressed in prostate. KLK11 is a novel marker for ovarian and prostate cancer carcinomas (6-8). Recombinant human KLK11, after being activated by thermolysin, is active against a thioester substrate. This activity can be inhibited by AEBSF (Catalog # EI001), dichloroisocoumarin, and aprotinin. Recombinant human KLK11 produced by R&D Systems corresponds to isoform 1.
