Recombinant Human MMP7

Cat. No. : MMP7-40H
Product Overview : Recombinant Human Matrix Metalloproteinase-7 produced inE.Coliis a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing having a molecular mass of 19.13 kDa. The MMP-7 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Description : Matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) also known as matrilysin and PUMP (EC cleaves a number of substrates including collagen types IV and X, elastin, fibronectin, gelatin, laminin and proteoglycans. MMP-7 is closely related to the stromelysin family members but is encoded by a different gene. MMP-7 is the smallest of all the MMPs consisting of a pro-peptide domain and a catalytic domain. It lacks the hemopexin-like domain common to other members of the MMPs. MMP-7 is secreted as a 28 kDa proenzyme and can be activated in vitro by organomercurials and trypsin and in vivo by MMP-3 to a 18 kDa active MMP-7 enzyme. Once activated, MMP-7 can activate pro-MMP-1 and pro-MMP-9 but not pro-MMP-2. MMP-7 is widely expressed having been reported in elevated levels in cycling endometrium as well as in colorectal cancers and adenomas, hepatocellular carcinomas, rectal carcinomas, and approximately 50% of gliomas.
Source : Escherichia Coli.
Physical Appearance : Sterile clear liquid solution.
Purity : Greater than 95.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Formulation : The protein (0.83 mg/ml) contains the following additives 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.4), 5 mM CaCl2 and 150 mM NaCl.
Biological Activity : The specific activity was found to be 3100 IU/mg.
Unit Definition : One unit is defined as the digestion of 1 µg Azocoll/min at 37°C.
Recommended Use : Western Blotting (1:1K-5K for neat serum and 1-10 ug/ml for affinity pure antibody using ECL technique). ELISA: Control peptide can be used to coat ELISA plates at 1 ug/ml and detected with antibodies (1:10-50K for neat serum and 0.5-1 ug/ml for affinity pure). Histochemistry & Immunofluorescence: Not tested.
Stability : Matrilysin although stable at 4°C for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
