Recombinant Human MSP/MST1 (CHO-expressed) Protein, CF Summary
Gln19-Arg483 ( alpha -chain) & Val484-Gly711 ( beta -chain)
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.

Macrophage stimulating protein (MSP), also known as HGF-like protein, and scatter factor-2, is a member of the HGF family of growth factors (1). MSP is secreted as an inactive single chain precursor (pro-MSP) that contains a PAN/APPLE-like domain, four kringle domains, and a peptidase S1 domain which lacks enzymatic activity (2). Human MSP shares 79% aa sequence identity with mouse MSP, and 44% aa sequence identity with human HGF. Pro-MSP is secreted by hepatocytes under the positive and negative control of CBP in complex with either HNF-4 or RAR, respectively (3). Circulating pro-MSP is proteolytically cleaved in response to tissue injury to yield a biologically active disulfide linked heterodimer consisting of a 45 - 62 kDa alpha and a 25 - 35 kDa beta chain (4, 5). Pro-MSP can be activated by MT-SP1, a transmembrane protease that is expressed on macrophages and is upregulated in many cancers (6). Heterodimeric MSP as well as the isolated beta chain bind to MSP R/Ron with high-affinity; however, only heterodimeric MSP can induce receptor dimerization and signaling (7, 8). MSP induces macrophage and keratinocyte proliferation and osteoclast activation (9, 10). It also inhibits LPS- or IFN-induced iNOS and IL-12 expression by macrophages, and prevents apoptosis of epithelial cells separated from the ECM (11, 12).
