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.

- Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 10 mM CaCl2, 150 mM NaCl, 0.05% (w/v) Brij-35, pH 7.5 (TCNB)
- Recombinant Human Serpin A1/ alpha 1‑Antitrypsin (rhSerpin A1) (Catalog # 1268-PI)
- Trypsin (Sigma, Catalog # T1426)
- Substrate: MCA-Arg-Pro-Lys-Pro-Val-Glu-Nval-Trp-Arg-Lys(DNP)-NH2 (Catalog # ES002), 2 mM stock in DMSO
- F16 Black Maxisorp Plate (Nunc, Catalog # 475515)
- Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent.
- Dilute Trypsin to 0.25 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
- Prepare a curve of rhSerpin A1 (MW: 45,667 Da) in Assay Buffer. Make the following serial dilutions:
200 nM, 100 nM, 50 nM, 33.3 nM, 22.2 nM, 14.8 nM, 9.88 nM, and 3.29 nM.
- Combine 25 µL of 0.25 µg/mL Trypsin with 25 µL of rhSerpin A1 serial curve dilutions. Include two controls of 25 µL Assay Buffer with 25 µL of 0.25 µg/mL Trypsin.
- Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- After incubation, add 200 µL of Assay Buffer to each serial curve dilution.
- Dilute Substrate to 20 µM in Assay Buffer.
- In a plate, load 50 µL of the diluted rhSerpin A1 curve, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 20 µM Substrate to wells.
- Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 320 nm and 405 nm (top read), respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
- Derive the 50% inhibition concentration (IC50) value for hSerpin A1 by plotting RFU/min (or specific activity) vs. concentration with 4-PL fitting.
- The specific activity for Trypsin at each point may be determined using the following formula (if needed):
Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =
|Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/RFU)|
|amount of enzyme (µg)|
*Adjusted for Substrate Blank
**Derived using calibration standard MCA-Pro-Leu-OH (Bachem, Catalog # M-1975).
- Trypsin: 0.00125 µg
- rhSerpin A1: 10, 5, 2.5, 1.665, 1.11, 0.74, 0.494, 0.165 and 0 nM
- Substrate: 10 µM
Recombinant Human Serpin A1/alpha-1-Antitrypsin (Catalog # 1268-PI) is measured by its ability to inhibit trypsin cleavage of a fluorogenic peptide substrate, Mca-RPKPVE-Nval-WRK(Dnp)-NH2 (Catalog # ES002).
Background: Serpin A1/alpha 1-Antitrypsin
Serpin A1 is the archetypal member of the Serpin superfamily of the serine protease inhibitors (1). As one of the most abundant proteinase inhibitors in the circulation, it is synthesized in the liver and secreted into the bloodstream with the major function to protect tissues against neutrophil elastase. A severe serpin A1 deficiency leads to several clinical complications such as pulmonary emphysema, juvenile hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (2). The deficiency is caused by point mutations in naturally occurring serpin A1 variants (over 70 are known). For example, the Z variant (Glu342 to Lys) forms intracellular inclusion bodies, is not secreted, and leads to a severe serpin A1 deficiency (3).
