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 MOPS and NaCl.
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.

Background: Slit3

Slit3 is an approximately 200 kDa member of the Slit family of large secreted axon guidance molecules that are ligands for ROBO receptors (1, 2). It is secreted to the extracellular space and also localizes in mitochondria via a mitochondria localization sequence (3). Mature human Slit3 consists of 4 cassettes of leucine-rich repeats (LRR) flanked by LRR N-terminal and C-terminal domains, followed by multiple EGF-like domains, a Laminin G-like domain, and a C-terminal cysteine-rich domain. Alternative splicing generates additional isoforms with a substituted cysteine-rich domain or a deletion in the last EGF-like domain and Laminin G-like domain. During development, Slit3 is expressed in the ventral neural tube, developing sensory organs, limb buds, and developing areas of the limbs in patterns that overlap with but are discrete from Slit1 and Slit2 (1, 2, 4). Axons will not be allowed to recross the floor plate unless all three Slit genes are disrupted, suggesting some overlap in Slit function (5). Slit3 is also expressed in the lung, kidney, skeletal muscle, and heart, both during development and postnatally (6-8). Mice with genetically disrupted Slit3 show abnormalities in diaphragm and kidney development (7, 8). Slit3 is additionally expressed by vascular endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells (9). It binds to both ROBO1 and ROBO4, but it is the ROBO4 interaction that mediates Slit3-induced angiogenesis (9). It also can enhance the chemokine-induced migration of monocytes (10). The related Slit2 protein is cleaved in vivo (at a site conserved in Slit3), and the resulting C-terminal fragment binds Plexin A1 and retains the ability to repel axon migration (4, 11). The corresponding C-terminal fragment of Slit3 is able to bind heparin and neutralize its anti-coagulant activity (12). Within this fragment (aa 1120-1523), human Slit3 shares 93% amino acid identity with mouse and rat Slit3.
