Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab52915 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Notes
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 50 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent dilution.
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/250.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IP.
  • 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.
    • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
