MMP‑10 in Human Colon Cancer Tissue. MMP‑10 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human colon cancer using Human MMP‑10 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB910) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Matrix metalloproteinases are a family of zinc and calcium dependent endopeptidases with the combined ability to degrade all the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP-10 (stromelysin 2) degrades a broad range of substrates including gelatin, collagen types III, IV and V, fibronectin, aggrecan, and pig cartilage proteoglycan. MMP-10 can activate other MMPs such as MMP-1 and MMP-8. MMP-10 is expressed in keratinocytes, T cells, menstrual endometrium, and a few tumor samples. Structurally, MMP-10 may be divided into four distinct domains: a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation, a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site; a short linker region, and a carboxyl terminal hemopexin-like domain.
