Description

Background

Type IV collagenase, 72-kD, is officially designated matrix metalloproteinase-2(MMP2). It is also known as gelatinase, 72-kD. MMP-2 plays an essential role in angiogenesis and arteriogenesis, two processes critical to restoration of tissue perfusion after ischemia. MMP-2 expression is increased in tissue ischemia, but the responsible mechanisms remain unknown. Matrix metalloproteinases(MMPs) catalyze extracellular matrix degradation. Control of their activity is a promising target for therapy of diseases characterized by abnormal connective tissue turnover. MMPs are expressed as latent proenzymes that are activated by proteolytic cleavage that triggers a conformational change in the propeptide(cysteine switch). The structure of proMMP-2 reveals how the propeptide shields the catalytic cleft and that the cysteine switch may operate through cleavage of loops essential for propeptide stability. The gene is localized to 16q21 using somatic cell hybrids and in situ hybridization. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human MMP-2, consisting of 631 amino acids with the molecular mass of 71KDa. The detected MMP-2 includes zymogen and active enzyme.

Application Note

Useful in Sandwich ELISA for Quantitative Detection of Antigen. Aliquot 0.1ml per well of the 10000pg/ml, 5000pg/ml, 2500pg/ml, 1250pg/ml, 625pg/ml, 312pg/ml, 156pg/ml human MMP-2 standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1ml of the sample diluent buffer into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1ml of each properly diluted sample of human cell culture supernatants, serum, or plasma (heparin) to each empty well. It is recommended that each human MMP-2 standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.

Purity/Specificity

Natural and recombinant human total MMP-2. There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.

Storage Condition

Store vials at 4°C prior to opening. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for 6 months at 4°C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use. For extended storage freeze at -20°C or below for 12 months. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing.
