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 PBS.

Background: IFNAB

The interferons (IFN) are a family of cytokines with potent antiviral, antiproliferative and immunomodulatory properties, and are classified based on their binding specificity to cell surface receptors (1). The type I IFNs bind to the interferon alpha receptor (IFNAR), which consists of two subunits: IFNAR1 ( alpha -subunit) and IFNAR2 ( beta -subunit). This binding contributes to TNF alpha induced signaling (2, 3). Both the human and mouse genome code for more than a dozen closely related IFN alpha subtypes and the various IFN alpha share about 80% sequence homology among them (4, 5). The mouse IFNAB consists of 190 amino acids (aa) including a 23 aa signal peptide and a 167 aa IFNAB main chain. It was found that IFNAB plays an important role in the regulation of DNA synthesis in colong-stimulating factor (CSF)-1-stimulated macrophage, as well as mediates the inhibitory efffects of LPS and TNF alpha (6). IFN regulatory factor 2 (IRF-2) controls IFNAB signaling and the absence of its negative regulation selectively affects development of the CD8 alpha - myeloid DC population (7).
