Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab77962 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa.
IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml.
Enzyme Immunoassay Use at an assay dependent dilution.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution.

Target

  • FunctionCan degrade fibronectin, laminin, gelatins of type I, III, IV, and V; collagens III, IV, X, and IX, and cartilage proteoglycans. Activates procollagenase.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
  • DomainThe conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.

Anti-MMP3 antibody [55-2A4] images

  • IHC image of ab77962 staining in Hu Placenta formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab77962, 10µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
