Recombinant Mouse VSIG8 Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary
Accession # Q6P3A4
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.

Recombinant Mouse VSIG-8 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 9204-VS) inhibits anti-CD3 antibody induced IL-2 secretion in human T lymphocytes. The ED50 for this effect is 0.5-3 μg/mL.
VSIG8 (V-set and immunoglobulin domain containing 8), also known as C1orf204, is an approximately 45 kDa type I transmembrane protein of the B7 family within the Ig superfamily. Mature mouse VSIG8 consists of a 241 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) containing two V-type Ig-like domains, a 21 aa transmembrane domain, and a 134 aa cytoplasmic domain. Within the ECD, mouse VSIG8 shares 88% and 95% aa identity with human and rat VSIG8, respectively. Alternative splicing generates an isoform of mouse VSIG8 that lacks most of the first Ig-like domain. VSIG8 was identified from proteomic analysis of human hair shafts (1, 2). It is expressed in the hair follicle and shaft, superficial layers of the nail matrix, and superficial layers of oral epithelium (3). R&D Systems in-house testing indicates that VSIG8 inhibits the production of IL-2 by activated T cells.
