Detection of MMP‑2 in MG‑63 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. MG‑63 human osteosarcoma cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑2 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC9023P, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC003P, open histogram). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

Matrix metalloproteinases are a family of zinc and calcium dependent endopeptidases that have a combined ability to degrade all the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP‑2 (Gelatinase A), a type IV collagenase, can degrade a broad range of substrates including type IV, V, VII and X collagen, as well as elastin and fibronectin. It is believed to act synergistically with interstitial collagenase (MMP‑1) in the degradation of fibrillar collagens as it degrades their denatured gelatin forms. MMP‑2 has been shown to be associated with many connective tissue cells, as well as neutrophils, macrophages and monocytes. Structurally, MMP‑2 may be divided into several distinct domains: a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation; a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site; a fibronectin-like domain thought to play a role in substrate targeting; and a carboxyl terminal (hemopexin-like) domain containing 2 N-linked glycosylation sites.
