MMP‑13 in MDA‑MB‑231 Human Cell Line. MMP‑13 was detected in immersion fixed MDA‑MB‑231 human breast cancer cell line using Human MMP‑13 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB511) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (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-13 (Collagenase-3) has been demonstrated to degrade a range of extracellular matrix proteins, including collagen types I, II, III, IV, IX, X and XIV, gelatin, aggrecan, perlecan and fibronectin. MMP-13 is distinguished from the other human collagenases by its effecient degradation of type II collagen. MMP-13 is expressed by fibroblasts, chrondrocytes and squamous epithelial cells. Structurally, MMP-13 may be divided into several distinct domains; a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation; a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site; a short hinge region and a carboxyl terminal (hemopexin-like) domain.
