MMP‑13 in Human Ovarian Cancer Tissue.
MMP‑13 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human ovarian cancer tissue using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human MMP‑13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF511) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

MMP‑13 in Human Breast.
MMP‑13 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast array using Goat Anti-Human MMP‑13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF511) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

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.
