Detection of MMP‑9 in NS0 Mouse Cell Line Transfected with Human MMP-9 by Flow Cytometry. NS0 mouse myeloma cell line transfected with human MMP-9 was stained with Mouse Anti-Human MMP‑9 Fluorescein‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC9111F, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC0041F, 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).

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
