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.

Carrier: 2037-C5

Background: Complement Component C5a

Human Complement 5a (C5a) is an enzymatically generated glycoprotein that belongs to a family of structurally and functionally related proteins known as anaphylatoxins. C5a is a 74 amino acid (aa) peptide that is created by the activity of C5a convertase on the C5 alpha-chain (1, 2). Human C5a has four alpha-helices plus three intrachain disulfide bonds that create a triple loop structure (3). In serum, proteolytic processing removes the C‑terminal arginine, creating a low activity C5adesArg74 molecule (1). Human C5a is 60% and 54% aa identical to mouse and rat C5a, respectively. C5a binds to a signaling G-protein coupled receptor (C5aR/CD88) and a nonsignaling GPCR termed C5L2 (4). Activation of Cd88 results in neutrophil chemotaxis and endothelial cell activation (1, 5). It also triggers an oxidative burst in macrophages and neutrophils, and induces release of histamine in basophils and mast cells.
