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.

Background: Resistin

Resistin, also known as adipocyte-specific secretory factor (ADSF) and found in inflammatory zone 3 (FIZZ3), is a member of a family of secreted cysteine-rich peptide hormones that also includes Resistin-like molecules RELM alpha, beta, and gamma. These molecules play important roles in inflammation, glucose metabolism, and insulin resistance (1, 2). Mature mouse Resistin is a 12 kDa protein with an N-terminal alpha -helical domain and a C-terminal beta -sandwich domain that is stabilized by multiple intrachain disulfide bonds (3). Resistin circulates as noncovalent trimers and disulfide-linked hexamers, with the trimeric form showing greater bioactivity (3, 4). Resistin can also form multimers with RELM beta  (4). Mature mouse Resistin shares 56% and 72% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with human and rat Resistin, respectively. It shares 34% - 42% aa sequence identity with mouse RELM alpha, beta, and gamma. In rodents, Resistin is expressed by adipocytes and in the pituitary and arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus (5 - 9). It is upregulated during adipogenesis, in obesity, and by insulin or a high carbohydrate diet (5, 6). This is in contrast to human Resistin which is produced by macrophages and monocytes but not by adipocytes (9 - 12). Mouse Resistin induces proinflammatory molecule production in adipocytes and promotes hepatic gluconeogenesis and insulin resistance (5, 7). Human Resistin promotes lipolysis by human and mouse adipocytes, but mouse Resistin does not promote lipolysis by adipocytes of either species (10). Both mouse and human Resistin promote vascular endothelial cell sprouting in vitro and inflammatory reactions in vivo (13 - 16).
