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: IL-1ra/IL-1F3

Interleukin 1 alpha (IL-1 alpha ), IL-1 beta, and IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) are members of the IL-1 family. IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta are agonists that bind the functional IL-1 receptor I (IL-1 RI), which then recruits the IL-1 receptor accessory protein (IL-1 R AcP/IL-1 R3) and initiates signal transduction pathways that include the NF-kappa B. JNK/AP-1, and p38 MAP kinase pathways. Both IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta also bind the non‑signaling IL-1 RII that functions as a decoy receptor. IL-1ra is a receptor antagonist that binds both IL-1 RI and II with equal affinity as the IL-1 alpha and beta. Binding of IL-1ra to IL-1 RI does not initiate signal transduction pathways. IL-1 alpha and beta are pro‑inflammatory cytokines that play an important role in host defense. The imbalance between IL-1 ( alpha  and  beta ) and IL-1ra can influence the development of various pathologic conditions associated with chronic inflammation and tissue destruction. Pre‑clinical and clinical studies have indicated that IL-1ra may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of sepsis, rheumatoid arthritis and chronic myelogenous leukemia (1, 2).

Rat IL-1ra cDNA encodes a 178 amino acid (aa) residues secreted protein with a 26 aa signal peptide. Although intracellular isoforms of human IL-1ra that are transcribed from the same gene using different promotors have been described, analogous rat isoforms have not been reported. Rat IL-1ra shares 89% and 73% aa sequence homology with mouse and human IL-1ra, respectively. Secreted IL-1ra has been shown to be expressed by monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, fibroblasts and hepatocytes (1, 2).
