Recombinant Mouse Serpin A3N Protein, CF
Recombinant Mouse Serpin A3N Protein, CF Summary
Phe21-Lys418, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
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.
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.

- Read at a wavelength of 405 nm in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
- Derive the 50% inhibiting concentration (IC50) for rmSerpin A3N by plotting OD/min (or specific activity) vs. concentration with 4-PL fitting.
- The specific activity for rhGranzyme B at each point may be determined using the following formula (if needed):
Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =
|Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/M|
|ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)|
*Adjusted for Substrate Blank
**Using the extinction coefficient 13260 M-1cm-1
***Using the path correction 0.32 cm

Background: Serpin A3N
Serpin A3N is a serine protease inhibitor that is structurally related to alpha 1-antichymotrypsin encoded by the SERPINA3 gene (1). Serpin A3N is highly expressed in brain, testis, lung, thymus, and spleen (2). Serpin A3N secreted by Sertoli cells may regulate the activity of locally produced Granzyme B (3). Granzyme B inhibition by Serpin A3N may therefore regulate Granzyme B-mediated killing by cytotoxic lymphocytes, providing a means to disable cell-mediated immune responses.
