Product Datasheets

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: VEGFR3/Flt-4

VEGF R3 (Flt-4), together with VEGF R1 (Flt-1) and VEGF R2 (KDR/Flk-1), belong to the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). All three receptors contain seven immunoglobulin-like repeats in their extracellular domains and kinase insert domains in their intracellular regions. The expression of these receptors is almost exclusively restricted to the endothelial cells. These receptors are likely to play essential roles in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis.

In adults, VEGF R3 expression is restricted to the endothelial cells of the lymphatic vessels. Mouse VEGF R3 cDNA encodes a 1363 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein with a 24 aa residue signal peptide. Mature VEGF R3 has a 751 aa residue extracellular domain, a 22 aa residue hydrophobic transmembrane domain and a 565 aa residue cytoplasmic domain. The polypeptide sequences of murine Flt-4 is 88% identical to the human homologue. VEGF R3 has been reported to serve as the receptors for VEGF-C and VEGF-D.
