N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
28-35 kDa, reducing conditions
Measured by its ability to inhibit trypsin cleavage of a fluorogenic peptide substrate, Mca-RPKPVE-Nval-WRK(Dnp)-NH2 (Catalog # ES002). The IC50 value is <5 nM, as measured under the described conditions.
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
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris, NaCl and Brij-35.
Reconstitute at 100 μg/mL in sterile 25 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl, pH 7.5.
The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage:
Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
6 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
Human Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor 2 (TFPI-2), also known as placental protein 5 (PP5) and retinal pigment epithelial cell factor 1 (REF-1), is a secreted protein with a N-terminal acidic region, three Kunitz (K) domains (residues 36 to 86, 96 to 149 and 158 to 208) separated with by two linker regions, and a C‑terminal basic region (1-3). Expression of TFPI-2 is down-regulated in several cancers, which may contribute to tumor progression in these cancers (4). The purified rhTFPI-2 ends at residue 213 and does not contain the last 22 residues (residues 214 to 235) in the C-terminal region. It inhibits the activity of Recombinant Human Coagulation Factor VII (Catalog # 2338-SE) in the presence of Recombinant Human Coagulation Factor III/Tissue Factor (Catalog # 2339-PA).
