    See all MMP1 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [3B6] to MMP1
  • Specificity
    This monoclonal antibody binds to human MMP-1. ab2461 targets both the active form and the proenzyme. This antibody was tested for cross-reactivity with MMP-2, MMP-3, and MMP-9 and did not cross-react.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab2461 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 at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa.
IHC-P 1/2. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the microwave method before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • Function
    Cleaves collagens of types I, II, and III at one site in the helical domain. Also cleaves collagens of types VII and X. In case of HIV infection, interacts and cleaves the secreted viral Tat protein, leading to a decrease in neuronal Tat's mediated neurotoxicity.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
  • Domain
    There are two distinct domains in this protein; the catalytic N-terminal, and the C-terminal which is involved in substrate specificity and in binding TIMP (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases).
    The 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.
  • Post-translational
    Undergoes autolytic cleavage to two major forms (22 kDa and 27 kDa). A minor form (25 kDa) is the glycosylated form of the 22 kDa form. The 27 kDa form has no activity while the 22/25 kDa form can act as activator for collagenase.
  • Cellular localization
