Anti-MMP8 antibody - Aminoterminal end (ab38992)


  • Product nameAnti-MMP8 antibody - Aminoterminal endSee all MMP8 primary antibodies ...
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to MMP8 - Aminoterminal end
  • SpecificityAb38992 recognises the amino terminal end active of MMP8. It does not cross react with the other MMP family members.
  • Tested applicationsWB more details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide based on the amino terminal end of the activated Human MMP8.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab38992 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Notes
  • Application notesWB: Recommended starting dilution of 1/1000 when using colorimetric substrates such as BCIP/NBT and 1/5000 when using chemiluminescent substrates. Predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa. When used against the reduced protein, ab38992 identifies bands at 64 kDa, 58 kDa, and a series of further cleaved active forms. Note: MMP8 levels in quiescent cells and tissues are minimal, and mitogen stimulation or protein concentration is often needed to visualize the bands. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection. Not yet tested in other applications. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionCan degrade fibrillar type I, II, and III collagens.
    • Tissue specificityNeutrophils.
    • 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 localizationCytoplasmic granule. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Stored in intracellular granules.
