Human MMP-12 Antibody

  
  • Species Reactivity
    Human
  • Specificity
    Detects human MMP-12 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, less than 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse
    MMP-12 is observed, and less than 2% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) MMP-1 and rhMMP-3 is observed.

Data Examples
Detection of Human Pro‑MMP‑12 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human heart tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human MMP‑12 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF917) followed by
HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Pro‑MMP‑12 at approximately 54 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.
Immunohistochemistry
MMP‑12 in Human Squamous Cell Carcinoma. MMP‑12 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human squamous cell carcinoma using Goat Anti-Human MMP‑12 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF917) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cancer cells.

Background: MMP-12

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc and calcium dependent endopeptidases with the combined ability to degrade all the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP-12 (macrophage elastase) is found in macrophages and its expression in monocytes can be induced by cytokines such as GM-CSF and CD40 signaling (1). In addition to elastin, MMP-12 can degrade a broad spectrum of substrates, including type IV collagen, fibronectin, laminin, vitronectin, proteoglycans, chondroitin sulfate, myelin basic protein, alpha 1-antitrypsin, and plasminogen. It can also activate MMP-2 and MMP-3. MMP-12 is required for macrophage‑mediated proteolysis and matrix invasion in mice. MMP-12 is proposed to have a direct role in the pathogenesis of aortic aneurysms and in the development of pulmonary emphysema that results from chronic inhalation of cigarette smoke. Structurally, the pro MMP-12 consists of following domains: a pro domain, a catalytic domain containing the zinc-binding site, and a C-terminal hemopexin-like domain. The rhMMP-12 corresponds to the pro form that can be activated by autocatalysis under the conditions described above.
