Recombinant Human MMP-10 Protein, CF Summary
Complete Your Research
Complete Your Experiment
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

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-10 (stromelysin 2) degrades a broad range of substrates including gelatin, collagen types III, IV and V, fibronectin, aggrecan, and pig cartilage proteoglycan. MMP-10 can activate other MMPs such as MMP-1 and MMP-8. MMP-10 is expressed in keratinocytes, T cells, menstrual endometrium and a few tumor samples. Structurally, MMP-10 may be divided into four distinct domains: a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation, a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site; a short linker region, and a carboxyl terminal hemopexin-like domain.

Can the enzyme be stored after activation, or do I need to use it immediately after activation?
We recommend only activating the amount of enzyme needed for your assay, and recommend activating the enzyme immediately prior to use. Any unactivated enzyme should be stored in aliquots at either the stock concentration at which the enzyme was supplied, or the reconstitution concentration, according to the product datasheet.
If I use this enzyme at a higher concentration, do I need to change the concentration of APMA to activate it?
We have only optimized activation conditions for one particular concentration of this MMP enzyme as part of our regular QC testing for enzymatic activity. Activating the enzyme at any different concentration would have to be optimized by the end user.
Does this MMP enzyme need to be activated to work?
Yes, this enzyme requires activation prior to use.
What is the ratio of pro- and active forms of this enzyme prior to activation?
We do not measure the ratio of pro- to active MMP-10 prior to activation. We measure the activity of each lot after activation to ensure it passes our activity specification.
What is the activity of this enzyme in units/µg?
We supply this enzyme as a mass and calculate its activity relative to mass (pmol/min/µg). We have not calibrated this enzyme to an international standard unit, so we are unable to provide a conversion to units/µg.
