Formulation, Preparation and Storage

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-10

Interleukin 10 (IL-10), initially designated cytokine synthesis inhibitory factor (CSIF), was originally identified as a product of mouse T helper 2 (Th2) cells that inhibited the cytokine production by Th1 cells. It is a pleiotropic cytokine that regulates the immune and inflammatory responses of hematopoietic cells (1, 2). IL-10 has immunosuppressive activities and has been shown to inhibit the effector functions of monocyte/macrophage and CD4+ T cells. Conversely, IL-10 has immunostimulatory activities and can induce the proliferation and cytotoxic activity of CD8+ T cells and NK cells. IL-10 also regulates the growth and differentiation of B cells, mast cells, dendritic cells and neutrophils (1). The biological activities of IL-10 is mediated by the heteromeric IL-10 receptor complex, which is composed of the ligand-binding IL-1 R alpha and the accessory IL-10 R beta subunits. Both subunits belong to the class II cytokine receptor family. IL-10 R beta is also utilized as a subunit in the heterodimer receptor complex for IL-22, IL-28 and IL-29. Besides IL-10, five novel cytokines (IL-19, -20, -22, -24, and -26) that share structural and limited sequence homology with IL-10 have been identified. These proteins constitute the IL-10 cytokine family (3).

Equine IL-10 cDNA encodes a 178 amino acid residue (aa) precursor protein with an 18 aa signal peptide and 160 aa mature protein that contains two potential N-linked glycosylation sites. Analogous to human IL-10, equine IL-10 likely exists as nondisulfide-linked homodimers. Equine IL-10 shares 71% and 78% aa sequence homology with mouse and human IL-10, respectively.
