Detection of Human MMP‑3 by Western Blot. Western blot shows Recombinant Human MMP-3 Western Blot Standard Protein (Catalog # WBC015) and lysate of U‑118‑MG human glioblastoma/astrocytoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Primate MMP‑3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF513) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for MMP‑3 at approximately 57-60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
MMP‑3 in Human Bladder Cancer Tissue. MMP‑3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human bladder cancer tissue using Goat Anti-Human/ Primate MMP‑3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF513) 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). Specific staining was localized to epithelial cells.

MMP‑3 in Human Lung Cancer. MMP‑3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human lung cancer using Goat Anti-Human/Primate MMP‑3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF513) at 15 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). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

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-3 (stromelysin-1) can degrade a broad range of substrates including collagen alpha chains, aggrecan, laminin, fibronectin, elastin, casein, alpha -1 antitrypsin, myelin basic protein, IL-1 beta, IGFBP-3, pro-MMP-1, pro-MMP-7, pro-MMP-8, pro-MMP-9, and pro-MMP-13. MMP-3 does not cleave the triple helical region of interstitial collagens, a characteristic which distinguishes the stromelysins from the collagenases. The MMP-3 substrate repertoire extends beyond extracellular matrix proteins and implicates MMP-3 in roles other than direct tissue remodelling, for instance, enzyme cascades and cytokine regulation. MMP-3 is expressed by fibroblasts, chrondrocytes, osteoblasts, endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, and macrophages. Structurally, MMP-3 may be divided into several distinct domains; a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation; a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site; a short hinge region and a carboxyl terminal (hemopexin-like) domain.
