2709-NP/CF (carrier free)

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.

2709-NP

Background: Neuropoietin/NP

Neuropoietin (NP; also known as cardiotrophin-2) is a 22 kDa member of the IL-6 family of cytokines. Considered to be the product of a gene duplication event involving cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1), it helps to define a subfamily within the IL-6 family that includes CT-1, CLC and CTNF. Mouse neuropoietin is synthesized as a 204 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 22 aa signal sequence and a 192 aa mature segment. The secreted molecule is characterized by the presence of four alpha -helices, typical of hematopoietic superfamily molecules. Mature mouse neuropoietin shares 88%, 90% and 95% aa identity to chimpanzee, canine and rat neuropoietin, respectively. The human gene is suggested to have evolved towards a pseudogene, a point of interest in that neuropoietin is reported to signal through the CNTF complex (i.e., gp130, CNTF R alpha and LIF R). NP will mediate motor neuron survival, and appears to be selectively expressed in the embryo by tissues involved with nervous system development (1).
