Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 Membrane Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary
|SARS-CoV-2 Membrane Protein |
Accession # YP_009724393.1
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.

2 μg/lane of Recombinant SARS-CoV-2 Membrane Fc Chimera Protein (Catalog # 10690-CV) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions. Visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 33-43 kDa and 60-80 kDa, respectively.
SARS-CoV-2, which causes the global pandemic coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), belongs to a family of viruses known as coronaviruses that are commonly comprised of four structural proteins: Spike protein(S), Envelope protein (E), Membrane protein (M), and Nucleocapsid protein (N) (1). M protein is the most abundant structural protein in the coronavirus membrane, and it is predicted to span the membrane three times, with a short N-terminal domain outside the viral envelope and a long C-terminal domain inside the virion (2). SARS-CoV-2 M protein is a 222 amino acid (aa) glycoprotein that is composed of an 18 aa N-terminal domain on the viral surface, 3 transmembrane domains, and a 122 aa C-terminal domain inside the viral envelope. SARS-CoV-2 M protein shares 89.14%, 98.6%, 98.2%, and 38.36% aa similarity with SARS-CoV-1, bat SARS-CoV, pangolin SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV M proteins, respectively (3). The M protein of coronavirus plays an important role in assembly of viral particles by interacting with other structural proteins, especially with the E protein (4, 5). In SARS-CoV-2, M protein, combined with E protein, regulates intracellular trafficking of the S Protein and its unique furin-mediated processing (6).
