|Application ||WB, IHC, FC, ICC, E|
|Description||Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. This gene encodes a secreted enzyme which breaks down the interstitial collagens, types I, II, and III. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.3. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of human MMP1 expressed in E. Coli. |
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Interstitial collagenase, 18.104.22.168, Fibroblast collagenase, Matrix metalloproteinase-1, MMP-1, 22 kDa interstitial collagenase, 27 kDa interstitial collagenase, MMP1, CLG|
WB~~1/500 - 1/2000
IHC~~1/500 - 1/2000
FC~~1/200 - 1/400
IF~~1/200 - 1/1000
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MMP1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cleaves collagens of types I, II, and III at one site in the helical domain. Also cleaves collagens of types VII and X. In case of HIV infection, interacts and cleaves the secreted viral Tat protein, leading to a decrease in neuronal Tat's mediated neurotoxicity.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
