N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
13 kDa and 16 kDa, reducing conditions
Measured by its ability to inhibit neutrophil elastase cleavage of the fluorogenic peptide substrate, MeOSuc-Ala-Ala-Pro-Val-7-amido-4-methylcoumarin (MeOSuc-AAPV-AMC). The IC50 value is <50 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
Supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris and NaCl.

Trappin-2 is the human member of the trappin gene family that contains SLPI (1). Trappin-2 consists of an N-terminal transglutaminase substrate domain (residues 23‑60) and a C-terminal four-disulfide core or whey acidic protein (WAP) domain (residues 72‑117). Elafin or ESI (elastase-specific inhibitor) and SKALP (skin‑derived anti‑leucoproteinase) are alternative names for Trappin-2 and reflect its protease targets. However, elafin and SKALP sometimes correspond only to the processed form that contains the C-terminal WAP domain of the molecule, which can be isolated naturally. The recombinant human Trappin-2 corresponds to the full‑length form (residues 23‑117), which migrates as two protein bands under SDS-PAGE due to an unidentified mechanism. In addition to its ability to inhibit human neutrophil elastase, it can also be used as a substrate for transglutaminases.
