Recombinant Mouse SR-AI/MSR1 Protein, CF Summary
Trp79-Ser454, with an N-terminal 9-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.

The scavenger receptor (SR) family comprises a group of functionally defined membrane receptors that share the common ability to bind and internalize modified forms of Low Density Lipoproteins (mLDL) (1 - 3). Family members are classified alphabetically. The A class include four proteins: the three subtypes of SR-A (AI, AII, and AIII) that are generated by alternative splicing of the same gene, and a structurally similar protein named MARCO (4). All A class SRs are multidomain trimeric type II membrane proteins. SR-AI has an N-terminal cytoplasmic domain, a transmembrane domain, a spacer domain, an alpha -helical coiled coil, a collagen-like domain and a C-terminal cysteine-rich domain. SR-A is expressed by most tissue macrophages, dendritic cells and Kupffer cells. It is also highly expressed by microglia in neonatal as well as Alzheimer’ Disease brains. SR-AI binds a broad range of polyanionic ligands including modified proteins (e.g. Oxidized, acetylated or maleylated LDL, Advanced glycation end-product proteins), polyribonucleotides (polyguanosine and polyinosine), polysaccharides (dextran sulfate, fucoidan), phospholipids (phosphatidylserine), bacterial products (lipopolysaccharide and lipoteichoic acid) and selected chemical compounds (silica, crocidolite asbestos). The ligand-binding region has been localized to a positively charged region in the carboxyl end of the collagen-like domain. Based on its ligand binding characteristics, SR-AI is implicated in many physiological and pathophysiological functions. Studies using SR-A knockout mouse have also suggested roles of SR-A in atherogenesis, host defense and innate immunity, acquired immune responses, macrophage adhesion, and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells (1 - 3).
