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: IGF-I/IGF-1

Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I or IGF-1), also known as somatomedin C, is the dominant effector of growth hormone and is structurally homologous to proinsulin. Rat IGF-I/IGF-1 is synthesized as four precursor isoforms with alternate N- and C-terminal propeptides (1). These isoforms are differentially expressed by various tissues (1). The 7.6 kDa mature IGF-I/IGF-1 is identical between isoforms and is generated by proteolytic removal of the N- and C-terminal regions. Mature rat IGF-I/IGF-1 shares 96% and 99% aa sequence identity with human and mouse IGF-I/IGF-1, respectively (2, 3), and exhibits cross-species activity. It shares 61% aa sequence identity with mature rat IGF-II/IGF-2. Circulating IGF-I/IGF-1 is produced by hepatocytes, while local IGF-I/IGF-1 is produced by many other tissues in which it has paracrine effects (1). IGF-I/IGF-1 induces the proliferation, migration, and differentiation of a wide variety of cell types during development and postnatally (4). IGF-I/IGF-1 regulates glucose and fatty acid metabolism, steroid hormone activity, and cartilage and bone metabolism (5 - 8). It plays an important role in muscle regeneration and tumor progression (1, 9). IGF-I/IGF-1 binds IGF-I R, IGF-II R, and the insulin receptor, although its effects are mediated primarily by IGF-I R (10). Heterodimers of insulin receptor/IGF-I R also exist and respond to IGF-I/IGF-1 but not to insulin stimulation (11). IGF-I/IGF-1 association with IGF binding proteins increases its plasma half-life and modulates its interactions with receptors (12).
