  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IP or WB.
  • Target

    • FunctionCleaves 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 similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase M10A family.
      Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
    • DomainThere 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
      modifications
      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.

    • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human squamous cell carcinoma of cervix tissue labeling MMP1 with ab52631 at 1/100 dilution followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051, 1/500). Counterstained with hematoxylin.

    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa cells labelling MMP1 with unpurified ab52631 at 1/30. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. An Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody. DAPI (blue) was used as the nuclear counterstain.

      Control: primary antibody (1/30) and secondary antibody, ab150120, an Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG (1/500).

    • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human testis tissue labelling MMP1 with unpurified ab52631 at 1/60. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9. A prediluted HRP-polymer conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody. Negative control using PBS instead of primary antibody. Counterstained with hematoxylin.

      IHC result showed parenchymal cells (such as spermatogonium and spermatocytes) in seminiferous tubules were negative, and the stromal cells were stained.

    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa cells labelling MMP1 with purified ab52631 at 1/50. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. An Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody. DAPI (blue) was used as the nuclear counterstain.

Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9. A prediluted HRP-polymer conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody. Negative control using PBS instead of primary antibody. Counterstained with hematoxylin.

      IHC result showed parenchymal cells (such as spermatogonium and spermatocytes) in seminiferous tubules were negative, and the stromal cells were stained.

    • Flow cytometry analysis of HeLa cells labelling MMP1 with unpurified ab52631 at 1/50 (red). Cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde. A FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/150) was used as the secondary antibody. Green - Isotype control, rabbit monoclonal IgG.

    • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human cervical carcinoma tissue labelling MMP1 with ab52631 at 1/50.

    • ICC/IF image of unpurified ab52631 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1% BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab52631, 1/1000 dilution) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

    • Flow cytometry analysis of HeLa cells labelling MMP1 with purified ab52631 at 1/70 (red). Cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde. A FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody (1/150). Green - Isotype control, rabbit monoclonal IgG.
