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 PBS with Trehalose.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 100 μg/mL in PBS.
Shipping The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.

Background: LRP-1 Cluster IV

LDL receptor-related protein 1 (LRP-1), also known as CD91 and the alpha 2-macroglobulin receptor, is a type I membrane protein in the LDL receptor superfamily. It is expressed on neurons, hepatocytes, adipocytes, vascular smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts, keratinocytes, macrophages, and megakaryocytes. LRP-1 is important for the clearance of a large number of circulating molecules involved in fatty acid metabolism and complexes of serine proteases with their inhibitors (1-4). LRP-1 also associates directly or through intracellular scaffold proteins with other membrane associated proteins on the same cell. This allows LRP-1 to modulate the activity or internalization of PDGF R beta, NMDA receptor subunits, TGF-beta receptors, Frizzled-1, various integrins, and the prion protein PrPc. Human LRP-1 is an N-glycosylated and sialylated molecule that is cleaved in the Golgi to produce an 85 kDa transmembrane beta  chain and a 515 kDa alpha  chain that associates noncovalently with the beta  chain but does not itself cross the membrane (11, 12). The alpha chain of LRP-1 contains 31 LDLR class A repeats, 34 LDLR class B repeats, and 22 EGF-like repeats (13). The LDLR domains are clustered in four regions throughout the protein (13). Cluster IV (aa 3332-3779) contains eleven LDLR class A repeats (14). Within this region, human LRP-1 shares 99% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat LRP-1. A shed soluble form of LRP-1 circulates in the serum and retains ligand binding properties (15). Cluster IV contains binding sites for Apolipoprotein E, LPL, and LRPAP/RAP,  alpha 2-macroglobulin, Coagulation Factor VIII light chain, Lactoferrin, PAI-1, tPA-PAI-1 complexes, Pro-uPA, and TFPI (14).
