Recombinant Mouse Cathepsin C/DPPI Protein, CF Summary
Asp25-Leu462, with a C-terminal 10-His tag
Accession # P97821
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: Cathepsin C/DPPI
Cathepsin C is a cysteine protease of the papain family (1). Cathepsin C sequentially removes dipeptides from the free N-termini of proteins and peptides. It has broad specificity except that it does not cleave a basic amino acid (Arg or Lys) in the N-terminal position or Pro on either side of the scissle bond. It requires halide ions for activity. The pro form contains a pro peptide and a catalytic region, which can be further processed into heavy/ alpha and light/ beta chains that are linked by a disulfide bond. It is broadly distributed. Cathepsin C plays a role in the lysosomal degradation. It also functions as a key enzyme in the activation of granule serine proteases in cytotoxic T lymphocytes and natural killer cells (granzymes A and B), mast cells (tryptase and chymase), and neutrophils (Cathepsin G and elastase) by removing their N-terminal activation dipeptides (2).
