|Application ||WB, IHC, IP|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Bovine, Horse|
|Calculated MW||53375 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml), immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry (works with paraffin imbedded sections). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the proenzyme (~60 kDa) and the cleaved fragments (34 kDa and 48 kDa) of MMP-13. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.|
|Other Names||MMP13 , CLG3 , Collagenase 3 , Matrix metalloproteinase 13|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||MMP-13 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in the degradation of extracellular matrix proteins including fibrillar collagen, fibronectin, TNC and ACAN. Cleaves triple helical collagens, including type I, type II and type III collagen, but has the highest activity with soluble type II collagen. Can also degrade collagen type IV, type XIV and type X. May also function by activating or degrading key regulatory proteins, such as TGFB1 and CTGF. Plays a role in wound healing, tissue remodeling, cartilage degradation, bone development, bone mineralization and ossification. Required for normal embryonic bone development and ossification. Plays a role in the healing of bone fractures via endochondral ossification. Plays a role in wound healing, probably by a mechanism that involves proteolytic activation of TGFB1 and degradation of CTGF. Plays a role in keratinocyte migration during wound healing. May play a role in cell migration and in tumor cell invasion (By similarity).|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
The matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are a family of peptidase enzymes responsible for the degradation of extracellular matrix components, including collagen, gelatin, fibronectin, laminin and proteoglycan. Transcription of MMP genes is differentially activated by phorbol ester, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB). MMP catalysis requires both calcium and zinc. MMP-13 (also designated collagenase-3) is produced by breast carcinomas and degrades collagen type I, II, III.
