MA5-15888 targets MMP9 in FACS and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-15888 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human MMP9 expressed in E. Coli. .
MA5-15888 detects MMP9 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 92kDa.
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 MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The enzyme encoded by this gene degrades type IV and V collagens. Studies in rhesus monkeys suggest that the enzyme is involved in IL-8-induced mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells from bone marrow, and murine studies suggest a role in tumor-associated tissue remodeling.
