Product Specifications for Recombinant Human HSP27 Protein, CF
E. coli-derived human HSP27 protein Thr2-Lys205, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
>95%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
<1.0 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
28 kDa, reducing conditions
Measured by its ability to inhibit apoptosis in human neutrophils. Sheth, K. et al. (2001) J. Surg. Res. 99:129. 1 μg/mL of Recombinant Human HSP27 will reduce neutrophil apoptosis by more than 25%. Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application.
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

Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are a family of highly conserved stress response proteins. Heat shock proteins function primarily as molecular chaperones by facilitating the folding of other cellular proteins, preventing protein aggregation or targeting improperly folded proteins to specific degradative pathways. HSPs are typically expressed at low levels under normal physiological conditions but are dramatically up-regulated in response to cellular stress. Elevated levels of HSPs have been observed in association with ischemia/reperfusion, cancer, and chronic heart failure. HSP27 is a member of the small heat shock protein family, which also includes HSP25 and the alpha -crystallins. HSP27 forms a large oligomer and the extent of phosphorylation plays a role in determining specific functions. HSP27 also functions as an anti-apoptotic molecule, regulating apoptosis through direct interaction with key components of the apoptotic pathway. HSP27 binds and sequesters cytochrome c released from the mitochondria in response to an apoptotic stimulus. This prevents the proper assembly of the apoptosome and subsequently, the activation of procaspase-9 and procaspase-3.
