Recombinant Human Serpin C1/Antithrombin-III Protein, CF
Recombinant Human Serpin C1/Antithrombin-III Protein, CF Summary
His33-Lys464, with a C-terminal 10-His tag
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.

- Dilute Thrombin to 1 µg/mL with Heparin at 48.6 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
- Prepare a curve of rhSerpin C1 (MW: 50,378 Da) in Assay Buffer. Make the following serial dilutions: 1000, 500, 250, 125, 62.5, 41.7, 27.8, 13.9, 6.94, and 2.31 nM.
- Mix equal volumes of rhSerpin C1 curve dilutions and Thrombin/Heparin mixture. Include a control (in duplicate) containing equal volumes of Assay Buffer and Thrombin/Heparin mixture.
- Incubate reaction mixtures at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- After incubation, dilute reaction mixtures by 1/5 in Assay Buffer.
- Dilute Substrate to 200 µM in Assay Buffer.
- In a plate load 50 µL of the diluted reaction mixtures to wells, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 200 µM Substrate.
- Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 380 nm and 460 nm (top read), respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
- Derive the 50% inhibition concentration (IC50) for rhSerpin C1 by plotting RFU/min (or specific activity) vs. concentration with 4-PL fitting.
- Calculate specific activity for Thrombin at each point 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 7-amino, 4-Methyl Coumarin (Sigma, Catalog # A-9891)

- Substrate: 100 µM
Background: Serpin C1/Antithrombin-III
Serpin C1 is a member of the Serpin superfamily of the serine protease inhibitors (1). It is the principal plasma Serpin of blood clotting proteases and inhibits thrombin as well as several factors such as Xa (2). Similar to Serpins A5 and D1, its thrombin inhibitory activity is enhanced by heparin. Hereditary and acquired Serpin C1 deficiency is the cause of an increased thrombotic tendency in many cases (3). For example, acquired Serpin C1 deficiency is a common condition in sepsis, after major trauma or surgery (4).
