Recombinant Human SF20/MYDGF Protein, CF Summary
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.

When Recombinant Human SF20/MYDGF (Catalog # 10231-MY) is immobilized at 2 µg/mL, 100 µg/well, Recombinant Human Protein Disulfide Isomerase/P4HB (Catalog # 4236-DI) binds with an ED50 of 0.8-4.8 µg/mL.
2 μg/lane of Recombinant Human SF20/MYDGF (Catalog # 10231-MY) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 14-15 kDa.
Myeloid-Derived Growth Factor, or MYDGF, is a Bone marrow-derived monocyte protein, and it is correlated with enhanced metabolic activity, suppression of apoptosis, and stimulation of cell proliferation (1). MYDGF is expressed predominantly in inflammatory cells, such as monocytes and macrophages (1). Up-regulation of MYDGF expression was also found during adipocyte differentiation (2). Expression of MYDGF was induced in the circulation and heart tissue after myocardial infarction. It promotes cardiac myocyte survival by stimulating endothelial cell proliferation through a MAPK1/3-, STAT3- and CCND1-mediated signaling pathway, and inhibits cardiac myocyte apoptosis in a PI3K/AKT-dependent signaling pathway (1). MYDGF was found over-expressed in approximately two-thirds of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) tissues, and its expression was significantly positively correlated with that of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) (3). In HCC, MYDGF could regulate cell proliferation through activating Akt/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways (3). Human MYDGF shares 92% and 85% amino acid sequence identity to mouse and rat MYDGF, respectively. Intriguingly, virtually all homologs of MYDGF have a C-terminal putative ER retention sequence BXEL (B: Arg, His, or Lys; X: variable residue; E: Glu; L: Leu), which has the potential to retain human MYDGF and its homologs in the ER, whereas truncated MYDGF without BXEL is secreted from the cell (4). However, the functions of these different forms remain unclear.
