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 100 μg/mL in sterile PBS.

Background: EphA7

EphA7, also known as Mdk1, Hek11, Ehk3, Ebk, and Cek11, is a 115-120 kDa glycosylated member of the Eph family of transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinases (1, 2). The A and B classes of Eph proteins are distinguished by Ephrin ligand binding preference but have a common structural organization. EphA7 preferentially binds to and is activated by Ephrin-A1, -A2, -A3, -A4, and -A5 (3 - 6). Eph-Ephrin interactions are widely involved in the regulation of cell migration, tissue morphogenesis, and cancer progression. The 527 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) of mouse EphA7 contains an N‑terminal Ephrin binding region, a cysteine-rich region, and two fibronectin type III domains (FnIII). The 421 aa cytoplasmic domain contains the tyrosine kinase domain and a sterile alpha motif (SAM) (7). Within the ECD, mouse EphA7 shares 98% and 99% aa sequence identity with human and rat EphA7, respectively. Alternate splicing generates a differentially expressed kinase-defective isoform of mouse EphA7 that lack most of the cytoplasmic domain and a soluble isoform that is truncated following the first FnIII domain (4, 6 - 9). In mouse, EphA7 is expressed in discrete regions of the developing and adult neocortex (4, 7 - 10), Purkinje layer of the cerebellum (7), limbic system (4, 8 ‑ 10), visual and auditory systems (7, 8, 11), and the peripheral sensory nervous system (7, 8). EphA7 functions as a repulsive guidance molecule during the targeting of retinal axons to the superior colliculus  and of neocortical axons to the thalamus (4, 10, 11). EphA7 is also expressed in mesenchymal cells along routes of axon innervation during limb development (12). EphA7 ligands are expressed in a complementary pattern during embryogenesis (3, 10 - 12). EphA7 is selectively expressed in early stages of the B cell lineage, and a 50 kDa secreted form is produced by mature peripheral B and T cells (6, 13). This isoform is also expressed in human lung carcinoma (14). EphA7 can be up or downregulated in a variety of human cancers (6, 15, 16).
