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, NaCl and TCEP.

The pantothenate kinase (PANK) gene family contains four members and encodes five functional isoforms. The PANK enzymes are key to the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA) (1,2). CoA is used by around 4% of intracellular enzymes as a co-substrate. PANK1 is the key regulatory enzyme in the CoA biosynthetic pathway and plays similar roles in both bacterial and mammalian cells (3). PANK1 expression levels are high in liver, kidney, and heart tissues (4). Mutations in PANK1 have been linked to Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder caused by excessive brain iron accumulation due to the defects in CoA synthesis (5). The activity of this enzyme has been measured with a phosphatase-coupled method (6).
