Accession # YP_009724390.1
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 SARS-CoV-2 B.1.351 Spike RBD Fc Chimera (Catalog # 10935-CV) binds Recombinant Human ACE-2 His-tag (933-ZN) in a functional ELISA.
2 μg/lane of Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 B.1.351 Spike RBD Fc Chimera (Catalog # 10935-CV) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 57-64 kDa and 110-130 kDa, respectively.
Background: Spike RBD
SARS-CoV-2, which causes the global pandemic coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), belongs to a family of viruses known as coronaviruses that also include MERS and SARS-CoV-1. Coronaviruses are commonly comprised of four structural proteins: Spike protein (S), Envelope protein (E), Membrane protein (M) and Nucleocapsid protein (N) (1). The SARS-CoV-2 S protein is a glycoprotein that mediates membrane fusion and viral entry. The S protein is homotrimeric, with each ~180 kDa monomer consisting of two subunits, S1 and S2 (2). In SARS-CoV-2, as with most coronaviruses, proteolytic cleavage of the S protein into S1 and S2 subunits is required for activation. The S1 subunit is focused on attachment of the protein to the host receptor while the S2 subunit is involved with cell fusion (3-5). A metallopeptidase, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), has been identified as a functional receptor for SARS-CoV-2 through interaction with a receptor binding domain (RBD) located at the C-terminus of S1 subunit (6, 7). The RBD of SARS-CoV-2 shares 73% amino acid (aa) identity with the RBD of the SARS-CoV-1, but only 22% aa identity with the RBD of MERS. A SARS-CoV-2 variant carrying amino acid substitutions N501Y, K417N, and E484K in the RBD raised the most concerns. This B.1.351 lineage, also known and 501Y.V2 variant, was first identified in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa in December 2020 and spread quickly to become the most dominant strain in the second COVID wave in South Africa (8). Two of these mutations K417N and E484K locate at the receptor binding motif (RBM) and are not found in other variants (8). The N501Y mutation is also found in London (B.1.1.7 lineage) and Brazil (P.1 lineage). The B.1.351 lineage is reported to enter cells more easily due to its enhanced affinity to ACE-2 receptor (9). It is reported to reduce the efficacy of neutralizing antibody (9, 10).
