  • Species Reactivity
  • Specificity
    Detects recombinant human (rh) MMP-12 in Western blots. Recognizes forms of rhMMP-12 containing the C-terminal hemopexin-like domain only. Does not detect the fully mature 20 kDa proteolytic MMP-12 entity, where the C-terminal domain has been lost.
  • Source
    Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 4D2
  • Purification
    Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
  • Immunogen
    Chinese hamster ovary cell line CHO-derived recombinant human MMP-12
  • Formulation
    Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.

Data Examples
Detection of Human MMP‑12 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human lung tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 5 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑12 Hemopexin Domain Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB917) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for MMP‑12 at approximately 50-55 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
MMP‑12 in Human Ovarian Cancer Tissue. MMP‑12 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human ovarian cancer tissue using 25 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑12 Hemopexin Domain Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB917) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-AEC Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (red; Catalog # CTS003) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: MMP-12
MMP-12, also known as macrophage elastase, is a zinc and calcium dependent endopeptidase expressed constitutively in macrophages and can be induced in monocytes. 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. The MMP-12 precursor consists of a pro domain, a catalytic domain containing the zinc-binding site, and a C-terminal hemopexin-like domain.
