|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti Human MMP-1 antibody, clone 3B6 recognizes human matrix metalloproteinase 1 (MMP-1), also known as interstitial or fibroblast collagenase, a 469 amino acid, in the pro-peptide form, zinc-dependent endopeptidase responsible for degrading the extracellular matrix. MMPs are also involved in cell proliferation, migration, differentiation and apoptosis (Chenet al.2013). Most MMP’s are synthesised as inactive zymogens and a propeptide region must be cleaved off before the enzyme becomes active (Nagaseet al.1992). MMP expression is increased dramatically in a variety of cancer types, where it indicates invasive disease and a poor prognosis (Murrayet al.1996).MMP-1 is one of the collagenases, capable of degrading collagens I, II and III, all main components of the interstitial stroma (Robichaudet al.2011). MMP-1 is overexpressed in invasive melanoma, colorectal and esophageal cancers (Langenskiöldet al.2013). MMP-1 has also been implicated in arthritis and may influence atherosclerotic lesion formation (Nikkariet al.1995) . Additionally, MMP-1 has been implicated in the repair processes of the heart after myocardial infarction (Yarbroughet al.2003).Mouse anti Human MMP-1 has been used successfully for the detection of MMP-1 in gastric cancer by both Western blotting and immunohistochemistry (Murrayet al.1998).|
