Human MMP-9 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human MMP-9 in Western blots. In Western blots, reactivity with the pro (92 kDa), active (82 kDa), and C-terminal truncated (65 kDa) forms of recombinant human (rh) MMP-9 is observed. Also in Western blots, 20% cross-reactivity with rhMMP-2, 5% cross‑reactivity with rhMMP-1, and no cross-reactivity with rhMMP-3, -7, -8, -10, -12, or -13 is observed.

Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human MMP-9 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human MMP‑9 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 5 ng/mL PMA for 24 hours. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human MMP-9 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB911) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for MMP-9 at approximately 85 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: MMP-9

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-9 (Gelatinase B) can degrade a broad range of substrates including gelatin, collagen types IV and V, elastin and proteoglycan core protein. 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-9 is produced by keratinocytes, monocytes, macrophages and PMN leukocytes. MMP-9 is present in most cases of inflammatory responses. Structurally, MMP-9 maybe be divided into five distinct domains: a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation, a gelatin-binding domain consisting of three contiguous fibronectin type II units, a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site, a proline-rich linker region, and a carboxyl terminal hemopexin-like domain.
