|Other Names||Matrix metalloproteinase-16, MMP-16, 3424-, MMP-X2, Membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 3, MT-MMP 3, MTMMP3, Membrane-type-3 matrix metalloproteinase, MT3-MMP, MT3MMP, MMP16, MMPX2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6200a was selected from the N-term region of human MMP16 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Endopeptidase that degrades various components of the extracellular matrix, such as collagen type III and fibronectin. Activates progelatinase A. Involved in the matrix remodeling of blood vessels. Isoform short cleaves fibronectin and also collagen type III, but at lower rate. It has no effect on type I, II, IV and V collagen. However, upon interaction with CSPG4, it may be involved in degradation and invasion of type I collagen by melanoma cells.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform Long: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein; Extracellular side. Note=Localized at the cell surface of melanoma cells|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, ovary and small intestine. Isoform Short is found in the ovary|

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 MMPs are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. This gene for MMP16 produces two transcripts, which encode a membrane-bound form and a soluble form of the protein. Both forms of the protein activate MMP2 by cleavage. This gene was once referred to as MT-MMP2, but was renamed as MT-MMP3 or MMP16.
