Human MMP-7 Antibody Summary
Accession # P09237
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Human MMP‑7 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Capan‑1 human pancreatic adenocarcinoma cell line and HT‑29 human colon adenocarcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human MMP‑7 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF907) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for MMP‑7 at approximately 28 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
MMP‑7 in Human Pancreas. MMP‑7 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreas array using Goat Anti-Human MMP‑7 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF907) at 10 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.

Detection of Human MMP‑7 by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of normal stem cells (negative control) and Crohn's stem cells, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for MMP‑7 at approximately 10 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human MMP‑7 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF907) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the
12-230 kDa separation system.
Neutralization of MMP‑7 Activity by Human MMP‑7 Antibody.
The cleavage of
Mca‑PLGL‑Dpa‑AR‑NH2 (10 μM, Catalog # ES001) by Recombinant Human MMP‑7 (0.2 µg/mL, Catalog # 907-MP) is measured after preincubation with increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human MMP‑7 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF907). The ND50 is typically 2 µg/mL.

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-7 (matrilysin) is expressed in epithelial cells of normal and diseased tissues, and is capable of digesting a large series of proteins of the extracellular matrix including collagen IV and X, gelatin, casein, laminin, aggrecan, entactin, elastin and versican. MMP-7 is implicated in the activation of other proteinases such as plasminogen, MMP-1, MMP-2, and MMP-9. In addition to its roles in connective tissue remodeling and cancer, MMP-7 also regulates intestinal
alpha ‑defensin activation in innate host defense, releases tumor necrosis factor‑ alpha in a model of herniated disc resorption, and cleaves FasL to generate a soluble form in a model of prostate involution. Structurally, MMP-7 is the smallest of the MMPs and consists of two domains: a pro-domain that is cleaved upon activation and a catalytic domain containing the zinc-binding site.

This antibody was used to build an ELISA to measure MMP-7 in human plasma samples. The antibody worked as a matched pair with itself. i.e. is served as both the capture and detection molecule.
