Human MMP-8 Antibody Summary
Accession # AAZ38714
This antibody functions as an ELISA detection antibody when paired with Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB908).
This product is intended for assay development on various assay platforms requiring antibody pairs. We recommend the Human Total MMP-8 DuoSet ELISA Kit (Catalog # DY908) for convenient development of a sandwich ELISA or the Human Total MMP-8 Quantikine ELISA Kit (Catalog # DMP800) for a complete optimized ELISA.
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.
MMP‑8 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. MMP-8 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using 8 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human MMP-8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9081) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to epithelial cells in terminal ductules (round) and intralobular duct (elongated) composing glandular lobules.

Human MMP-8 ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Human MMP‑8 protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB908) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (Catalog # DY990). Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9081) was biotinylated and incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (Catalog # DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (Catalog # DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (Catalog # DY994).

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-8 (neutrophil collagenase) is expressed in neutrophils, where it is stored in specific granules. MMP-8 release from the neutrophils is stimulated by various factors such as interleukins 1 and 8, TNF-alpha and GM-CSF. MMP-8 is capable of cleaving types I, II and III triple-helical collagen, gelatin peptides, fibronectin, proteoglycans, aggrecan, serpins, beta -casein and peptides such as angiotensin and substance P. In addition to its function in phagocytosis,
MMP‑8 has a high capacity for infiltrating connective tissue, and is implicated in the breakdown of the extracellular matrix in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Structurally, MMP-8 consists of several domains: a pro-domain that is cleaved upon activation, a catalytic domain containing the zinc-binding site, a short hinge region and a hemopexin-like domain. MMP-8 is heavily glycosylated.
