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 PBS.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 1.00 mg/mL in PBS.
Shipping The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

Background: VEGFR2/KDR/Flk-1

Vascular endothelial Growth Factor Receptor 2 (VEGFR2), also known as FLK-1, KDR, and CD309, is a type I single-pass membrane receptor. Mature VEGFR2 contains a 745 amino acid extracelluar domain with seven immunoglobulin-like repeats, 21 transmembrane domain and 571 cytoplasmic domain. Within the extracellular domain, human VEGFR2 shares 80% homology with that of mouse and rat. VEGFR2, VEGFR1(Flt-1) and VEGFR3(Flt-4) belong to the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). All three receptors have almost exclusive expression in the endothelial cells and play essential roles in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. VEGFR2 is the receptor for VEGF-A, VEGF-C, VEGF-D, and VEGF-E (viral homologs) (1, 2). Monomeric VEGFR2 dimerizes after binding to dimeric ligand and phosphorylate the Tyr in the cytoplasmic domain (3). VEGFR2 can also form heterodimer with VEGFR1 and VEGFR3 (4-6). Alternative splicing isoforms 2 and 3 which lack the transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains function as decoy receptors (7, 8). Targeting the signaling pathways of VEGFR1 and VEGFR2 are potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of inflammation and multiple tumors including breast, gastric, and lung carcinomas (9-12). Cancer immunotherapies using VEGF and VEGFR2 monoclonal antibodies may also be effective in combination with programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1)/ programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) immune checkpoint blockade (13).
