|Other Accession||NP_004985, 74272287|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 76 kDa |
|Application Notes||MMP9 antibody can be used for detection of MMP9 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/ml.|
|Target/Specificity||MMP9; MMP9 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least three isoforms of MMP9 are known to exist; this antibody only recognizes the two longest isoforms.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||MMP9 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||MMP9 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May play an essential role in local proteolysis of the extracellular matrix and in leukocyte migration. Could play a role in bone osteoclastic resorption. Cleaves KiSS1 at a Gly-|-Leu bond. Cleaves type IV and type V collagen into large C-terminal three quarter fragments and shorter N-terminal one quarter fragments. Degrades fibronectin but not laminin or Pz-peptide.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Produced by normal alveolar macrophages and granulocytes|

The matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are a family of proteins that 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 (1). MMP9 degrades type IV and V collagens (2) and studies suggest that the enzyme is involved in IL-8-induced mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells from bone marrow (3) and plays a role in tumor-associated tissue remodeling (4).
