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.

Background: Trypsin 2/PRSS2
Human Trypsin 2, encoded by the PRSS2 gene, is also known as anionic Trypsin (1). Accounting for approximately 1/3 of the total trypsin content in the pancreatic juice, it is one of the trypsins produced in the pancreas. It consists of a signal peptide (residues 1‑15), a pro region (residues 16‑23), and a mature chain (residues 24‑247). Trypsin 2 is synthesized as a zymogen and secreted into the duodenal lumen, where it is activated by enteropeptidase (2). It plays a central role in digestion and activating other pro-enzymes. In human pancreatic diseases and chronic alcoholism, it is up-regulated (3).

Reason for Rating: We have used this IRT-2 to prepare dried blood spot Standards and Controls. These DBS material is used in our multiplex assay (Luminex xMAP Platform) to screen newborn babies for Cystic Fibrosis.
We started with only IRT-2 and then added a combination of IRT-1 + IRT-2. Both with excellent results.
