Product Datasheets

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.

Bioactivity Recombinant Human R-Spondin 1 Biotinylated Protein, CF Bioactivity View Larger

Both Biotinylated Recombinant Human R-Spondin 1 (Catalog # BT4645/CF) and unlabeled Recombinant Human R-Spondin 1 (Catalog #
4645-RS) induces activation of beta -catenin response in Topflash Luciferase assay using HEK293T human embryonic kidney cells. The ED50 for this effect is 5-30 ng/mL in the presence of 5 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse Wnt-3a (Catalog # 1324-WN). The similarity in activity highlights that the biotinylated protein is fully functional.

Background: R-Spondin 1

R-Spondin 1 (RSPO1), also known as Cristin 3, is a 27 kDa secreted protein in the R-Spondin family of Wnt/ beta -catenin signaling regulators (1). These proteins contain two adjacent cysteine-rich furin-like domains followed by a thrombospondin (TSP-1) motif and a region rich in basic residues. Mature human R-Spondin 1 shares 87% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat R-Spondin 1 (2). Alternative splicing generates additional isoforms that have a substituted N-terminus or lack the TSP-1 domain. R-Spondin 1 enhances canonical Wnt/ beta -catenin signaling by competing with the Wnt antagonist Dkk-1, binding to Frizzled-8, Kremen, LRP-6, Lgr4, Lgr5, and Lgr6, and enhancing cell surface availability of Wnt receptors (3-11). R-Spondin 1 functions in dorsal neural tube development (12) as well as male and female germ cell development (7, 10, 13). It also induces bone formation (6), intestinal crypt cell proliferation (14), angiogenesis (7, 15), and insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells (11).
