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.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 500 μg/mL in PBS.
Shipping The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

Background: Myocilin

Myocilin is a secreted glycoprotein that belongs to the family of olfactomedin-related proteins (1). Mature human Myocilin is synthesized as a 472 amino acid (aa) precursor that can be cleaved into a 194 aa N-terminal fragment containing leucine zipper motifs within two coil–coil domains and a 335 aa C-terminal fragment containing an olfactomedin (OLF) domain (2). The human OLF-domain shares 87% aa sequence identity with the OLF-domain in mouse and rat. The Myocilin gene is expressed in the human eye compartments. When it is secreted, it can be detected in the cornea, trabecular meshwork, aqueous humor, iris, ciliary body, choroid sclera, retina and the axons of optic nerve ganglion cells (3). Mutations of the MYOC gene are associated with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), which is a complex disorder with a major heritable component (4). Myocilin interacts with itself to form dimers or multimers (2, 5-8), flotilin-1, optimedin, fibronectin, and fibrilin-1 as well as hevin and SPARC (2, 8-10). Myocilin stimulates cell migration that involves the activation of intergrin focal adhesion kinase (FAK)-serin/threonine kinase (AKT) signaling pathway (11). Myocilin binds specifically to the Heparin II domain of fibronectin (12).
