Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/5000. Predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa.

Target

  • Function
    May be involved in tissue injury and remodeling. Has significant elastolytic activity. Can accept large and small amino acids at the P1' site, but has a preference for leucine. Aromatic or hydrophobic residues are preferred at the P1 site, with small hydrophobic residues (preferably alanine) occupying P3.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found in alveolar macrophages but not in peripheral blood monocytes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
  • Domain
    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.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • Form
    The presence of a 22kDa truncated active form of MMP-12 in vitro as well as in vivo due to the internal autolytic cleavage of the C-terminus.
