|Other Names||Matrix metalloproteinase-17, MMP-17, 3424-, Membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 4, MT-MMP 4, MTMMP4, Membrane-type-4 matrix metalloproteinase, MT4-MMP, MT4MMP, MMP17, MT4MMP|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6201a was selected from the Center region of human MMP17 . 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 fibrin. May be involved in the activation of membrane-bound precursors of growth factors or inflammatory mediators, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha. May also be involved in tumoral process. Not obvious if able to proteolytically activate progelatinase A. Does not hydrolyze collagen types I, II, III, IV and V, gelatin, fibronectin, laminin, decorin nor alpha1-antitrypsin.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform Long: Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor; Extracellular side. Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in brain, leukocytes, colon, ovary testis and breast cancer. Expressed also in many transformed and non-transformed cell types|

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. MMP17 is considered a member of the membrane-type MMP (MT-MMP) subfamily. However, this protein is unique among the MT-MMPs in that it is a GPI-anchored protein rather than a transmembrane protein. The protein activates MMP-2 by cleavage.
