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 Tris-Citrate and NaCl.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 100 μg/mL in sterile PBS.

Background: LIMPII/SR-B2

LIMPII (Lysosomal Integral Membrane Protein II), also known as LPG85 (85 kDa lysosomal membrane sialoglycoprotein) and CD36 antigen-like 2 (CD36L2), is a major lysosomal membrane protein. It belongs to the scavenger receptor class B subfamily and is designated member 2 (SR-B2). Other mammalian members of this family include SR-B1 (alternatively known as Cla-1 and CD36L1), and SR-B3 (CD36) (1-3). SR-B/CD36 family members are type III integral membrane proteins with an N- as well as a C-terminal cytoplasmic tail, and a large extracellular (or luminal in the case of LIMPII) loop containing similarly spaced cysteine residues and multiple glycosylation sites. The C-terminal cytoplasmic tail has a di-leucine-based motif that mediates effective lysosomal targeting. LIMPII is expressed on all tissues and cell types examined so far, including activated platelets. LIMPII binds thrombospondin-1, but the biological significance of this interaction is not known. LIMPII-thrombospondin interaction may contribute to the pro-adhesive changes of activated platelets during coagulation and inflammation (1). Over-expression of LIMPII causes an enlargement of early and late endosomes, suggesting that LIMPII may play a role in lysosome/endosome biogenesis (4). Mice deficient in LIMPII are impaired in membrane transport processes, resulting in ureteric pelvic junction obstruction, deafness and peripheral neuropathy (5).
