|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||54387 Da|
|Antigen Region||233-262 aa|
|Other Names||Matrix metalloproteinase-20, MMP-20, 3424-, Enamel metalloproteinase, Enamelysin, MMP20|
|Target/Specificity||This MMP20 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 233-262 amino acids from the Central region of human MMP20.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MMP20 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Degrades amelogenin, the major protein component of the enamel matrix and two of the macromolecules characterizing the cartilage extracellular matrix: aggrecan and the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP). May play a central role in tooth enamel formation. Cleaves aggrecan at the '360-Asn-|-Phe-361' site.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Expressed specifically in the enamel organ.|
