MMP-9 (D6O3H) XP® Rabbit mAb (PE Conjugate) recognizes the full-length, proenzyme (92 kDa) and the cleaved, active enzyme (84 kDa) of MMP-9.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Phe542 of human MMP-9 protein.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to phycoerythrin (PE) and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry analysis in human cells. This antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated MMP-9 (D6O3H) XP® Rabbit mAb #13667.
The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of proteases that target many extracellular proteins including other proteases, growth factors, cell surface receptors, and adhesion molecules (1). Among the family members, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, and MMP-9 have been characterized as important factors for normal tissue remodeling during embryonic development, wound healing, tumor invasion, angiogenesis, carcinogenesis, and apoptosis (2-4). Research studies have shown that MMP activity correlates with cancer development (2). One mechanism of MMP regulation is transcriptional (5). Once synthesized, MMP exists as a latent proenzyme. Maximum MMP activity requires proteolytic cleavage to generate active MMPs by releasing the inhibitory propeptide domain from the full length protein (5).
