Product Summary

The Quantikine Human Pro-MMP-1 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure Pro-MMP-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Pro-MMP-1 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. The antibodies will not recognize recombinant human active MMP-1 or TIMP bound MMP-1. Natural human Pro-MMP-1 showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards, indicating that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values of natural human Pro-MMP-1.

Background: MMP-1

The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) consist of 24 known human zinc proteases with essential roles in breaking down components of the extracellular matrix (ECM). Additional MMP substrates include cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and binding proteins, cell/cell adhesion molecules, and other proteinases. With a few exceptions, MMPs share common structural motifs including a pro-peptide domain, a catalytic domain, a hinge region, and a hemopexin-like domain. Synthesized as pro-enzymes, most MMPs are secreted before conversion to their active form. MMP activities are modulated on several levels including transcription, pro-enzyme activation, or by their endogenous inhibitors, tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs). A subset of MMPs are associated with membranes and designated as membrane-type metalloproteinases (MT-MMP).

  4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

  5. 100 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
  6.   Add 100 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
  7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

  8. 200 µL Conjugate
  9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on the shaker.
  10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

  11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
  12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well.
  13.   For Cell Culture Supernate Samples: Incubate at room temperature for 20 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.
    For Serum & Plasma Samples: Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.
