Immunofluorescent analysis of MMP16 was performed on 80% confluent log phase HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 minutes, permeabilized with 0. 25% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 5% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with ABfinity™ MMP16 recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody (Product # 701306) at a dilution of 1:1000 in 1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Alexa Flour® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody (Product # A11008) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (Product # S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 594 phalloidin (Product # A12381) and panel d is a merged image showing membrane, cytoplasmic and traces of nuclear localization. The images were captured using a Nikon microscope at 20X magnification.

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale, and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
Matrix metallopeptidase 16 during embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling. MMP-16 is also involved in the ECM degradation processes associated with arthritis and metastasis. In humans, MMP-16 is a part of a cluster of MMP genes at the 11q22.3 locus.
