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.
Shipping The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.

Background: LRP-6

The low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein 5 (LRP-5) and LRP-6 constitute a distinct subgroup of the LDL receptor family (1). Both LRP-5 and LRP-6 are type I transmembrane proteins that function as Wnt co-receptors with Frizzled proteins (FZD) (2, 3, 4). The mouse LRP-6 cDNA encodes a 1613 amino acid (aa) residue precursor including a 19 aa signal sequence, 1351 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 23 aa transmembrane (TM) segment, and a 20 aa cytoplasmic domain (5). The ECD contains 20 YWTD motif-containing LDLR-B domains, fourEGF-like repeats, and three cysteine-rich LDLR-A repeats. The ECD of mouse LRP-6 shares 71% aa sequence identity with the ECD of mouse LRP-5 and 98% aa sequence identity with the ECD of human, rat, and canine LRP-6. The intracellular region of LRP-6 contains repeated PPPSP motifs. When the Ser/Thr in these motifs are phosphorylated, LRP-6 can interact with Axin and propagate canonical Wnt signal transduction (6, 7). LRP-6 forms inactive homodimers via its YWTD-EGF domains (8). Wnt binding to FZD and subsequent association with LRP-6 lead to activating conformational changes in LRP-6 cytoplasmic domains (8). LRP-6 can also interact directly with the Dickkopf (Dkk), sclerostin, and Wise proteins which are modulators of Wnt signaling (9 - 14). Formation of a ternary complex of LRP-6, Dkk-1, and Kremen triggers the internalization of the complex and removal LRP-6 from the cell surface. LRP-5 and LRP-6 share overlapping functions in diverse embryonic developmental processes (15).
