Recombinant Rat ALK-7 Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary
(Leu26 - Arg108)
Accession # NP_620790
|DIEGRMD||Human IgG1 |
(Pro100 - Lys330)
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.

Transforming growth Factor beta (TGF-beta ) superfamily ligands exert their biological activities via binding to heteromeric receptor complexes of two types (I and II) of serine/threonine kinases. Type II receptors are constitutively active kinases that phosphorylate type I receptors upon ligand binding. In turn, activated type I kinases phosphorylate downstream signaling molecules including the various smads. Transmembrane proteoglycans, including the type III receptor (betaglycan) and endoglin, can bind and present some of the TGF-beta superfamily ligands to type I and II receptor complexes and enhance their cellular responses. Seven type I receptors (also termed activin receptor-like kinase (ALK)) and five type II receptors have been isolated from mammals. ALK-2, -3, -4, -5, and -6 are also known as Activin R1A, BMPR-1A, Activin R1B, TGF-beta R1, and BMPR-1B, respectively, reflecting their ligand preferences. ALK-7 shares with other type I receptors a cysteine-rich domain with conserved cysteine spacing in the extracellular region, and a glycine-and serine-rich domain (the GS domain) preceding the kinase domain. Rat ALK-7 expression is restricted to the adult central nervous system, suggesting a possible role of ALK-7 during postnatal maturation and maintenance of several neuronal subpopulations in the cerebellum.
