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 Supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris and NaCl.
Shipping The product is shipped with polar packs. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 6 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after opening.

Assay Procedure

  • Assay Buffer: 25 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, 5 mM CaCl2, 10 mM MnCl2, pH 7.5
  • Sialyltransferase Activity Kit (Catalog # EA002)
  • Recombinant Human ST3GAL6 (rhST3GAL6) (Catalog # 10591-GT)
  • CMP-Sialic Acid (Calbiochem, Catalog # 233264), 2.5 mM stock in deionized water
  • N-Acetyllactosamine (Dextra Laboratories, Catalog # GN204), 50 mM stock in deionized water
  • 96-well Clear Plate (Catalog # DY990)
  • Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute 1 mM Phosphate Standard provided by the Sialyltransferase Activity Kit by adding 40 µL of the 1 mM Phosphate Standard to 360 µL of Assay Buffer for a 100 µM stock. This is the first point of the standard curve.
  2. Complete the standard curve by performing six one-half serial dilutions of the 100 µM Phosphate stock using Assay Buffer. The standard curve has a range of 0.078 to 5 nmol per well.
  3. Prepare a reaction mixture containing 0.4 mM CMP-Sialic Acid, 8 mM N-Acetyllactosamine and 4 µg/mL Coupling Phosphatase 2 (supplied in kit) in Assay Buffer.
  4. Dilute rhST3GAL6 to 20 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
  5. Load 50 µL of each dilution of the standard curve into a plate. Include a curve blank containing 50 μL of Assay Buffer.
  6. Load 25 µL of 20 µg/mL rhST3GAL6 into empty wells of the same plate as the curve. Include a Control containing 25 µL of Assay Buffer.
  7. Add 25 µL of reaction mixture to the wells, excluding the standard curve.
  8. Seal plate and incubate at 37 °C for 30 minutes.
  9. Add 30 µL of the Malachite Green Reagent A (supplied in kit) to all wells. Mix briefly.
  10. Add 100 µL of deionized water to all wells.
  11. Add 30 µL of the Malachite Green Reagent B (supplied in kit) to all wells. Mix and incubate for 20 minutes at room temperature.
  12. Read plate at 620 nm (absorbance) in endpoint mode.
  13. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Phosphate released* (nmol) x (1000 pmol/nmol)
Incubation time (min) x amount of enzyme (µg)


*Derived from the phosphate standard curve using linear or 4-parameter fitting and adjusted for Control.

Per Reaction:
  • rhST3GAL6: 0.5 µg
  • Coupling Phosphatase 2: 0.1 µg
  • CMP-Sialic Acid: 0.2 mM
  • N-Acetyllactosamine: 4 mM

Background: ST3GAL6

Sialyltransferases add sialic acid to glycoproteins or glycosphingolipids and play important roles in many biological processes including immune recognition, pathogen infection, and cell adhesion (1). ST3GAL6 is an alpha 2,3-sialyltransferase and forms alpha 2-3 linked sialic acid on Gal-beta 1,4-GlcNAc structure on glycoproteins and glycolipids (2). This enzyme has high specificity for some gangliosides and glycoproteins and may contribute to the formation of sialyl Lewis x (sLex), a carbohydrate important for cell-to-cell recognition and a blood group antigen (3). Study on various alpha 2,3-sialyltransferases indicate that ST3GAL6 selectively sialylates EGFR therefore affects ERK and AKT signal transduction pathways and positively correlates to cell proliferation and colony formation, which is in sharp contrast to ST3GAL4 that selectively sialylates beta 1 integrin (4).
