Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro275 of human MMP-13 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
MMP-13 (collagenase 3) belongs to the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) superfamily of enzymes that targets many extracellular proteins, including other proteases, growth factors, cell surface receptors, and adhesion molecules (1, 2). MMP-13 is a member of a subgroup of collagenases (including MMP-1, MMP-8, and MMP-18) that play an even more important function targeting fibrillar collagen. MMP-13 is synthesized as a latent proenzyme, and proteolytic removal of the inhibitory propeptide domain is required for enzyme activation. MMP-13 protein levels are regulated at the transcriptional level, via specific transcription factors and via promoter DNA methylation (3, 4). MMP-13 preferentially cleaves Type II collagen, and research studies have shown that aberrant upregulation of MMP-13 activity can lead to cartilage loss and osteoarthritis (5, 6). In addition, MMP-13 has been shown to promote cancer development, in part through enhancing tumor angiogenesis and metastases (7-9), suggesting that collagenase activity may serve as a useful marker of tumor progression (10).
