Formulation, Preparation and Storage
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our
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
Supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris and NaCl.

Background: Arylsulfatase A/ARSA
As a member of the sulfatase family, ARSA is required for the lysosomal degradation of cerebroside-3-sulfate, a sphingolipid sulfate ester and a major constituent of the myelin sheet (1). The ARSA deficiency results in metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD), a lysosomal storage disease in the central and peripheral nervous systems with severe and progressive neurological symptoms (2). The deduced amino acid sequence of human ARSA consists of a signal peptide (residues 1-18) and a mature chain (residues 19-507) (3). Recombinant human ARSA corresponds to the mature chain and has sulfatase activity described above.
