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 500 μg/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 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

Background: Versican

Versican (versatile proteoglycan; also known as PG-M, CSPG2, ERVR, GHAP, WGN, WGN1) is a 500-600 kDa, secreted member of the large aggregating chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan family, which includes aggrecan, neurocan, and brevican (1-3). The canonical sequence of human Versican (Isoform V0) is 3396 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an N-terminal hyaluronan-binding region, two large, alternately spliced GAG attachment domains (GAG alpha and GAG beta), two EGF-like domains, a selectin-like region, and a complement regulatory protein-like domain (2). Human Versican has multiple alternative splice variants that include variations mainly in the GAG regions. This product is the Isoform V3 which includes one mutation at aa 348 (Pro to Arg) and lacks of the entire GAG domains (aa 349-3089) compared to Isoform V0. Versican is known to associate with hyaluronan (4), tenascin (5-7), fibronectin (8), fibulin (9), and CD44 (10) in the extracellular matrix that may contribute to the malignant properties of tumor cells (11). It has an anti-adhesive effect on cells, facilitating tumor migration and invasion (12). The multiple alternative splice variants of human Versican could affect cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion (13-15), migration (16), proliferation, apoptosis (17), and mesenchymal-epithelial transition (18). The Versican gene is expressed in several different tissues, and it is over-expressed in several cancer types, including prostate (19), brain (20), ovary (21), breast (22) and melanoma (11).
