  • FunctionSeems to specifically activate progelatinase A. May thus trigger invasion by tumor cells by activating progelatinase A on the tumor cell surface. May be involved in actin cytoskeleton reorganization by cleaving PTK7.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in stromal cells of colon, breast, and head and neck. Expressed in lung tumors.
  • 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.
  • Post-translational
    The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane. Melanosome. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

Anti-MMP14 antibody [EP1264Y] images

  • Immunofluorescence staining of MCF7 cells with purified ab51074 working dilution of 1/500, counter-stained with DAPI. The secondary antibody was an Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated goat anti-rabbit (ab150077), used at a dilution of 1/1000. The cells were fixed in 100% methanol. The negative control is shown in bottom right hand panel - for the negative control, PBS was used instead of the primary antibody.

  • Anti-MMP14 antibody [EP1264Y] (ab51074) at 1/2000 dilution + Human spleen lysate

    Goat anti-Rabbit HRP labeled. at 1/2000 dilution

    Predicted band size : 66 kDa
    Observed band size : 65 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • Overlay histogram showing HT1080 cells stained with ab51074 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab51074, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-rabbit DyLight® 488 (IgG, H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit monoclonal IgG (1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in HT1080 cells fixed with methanol (5 min) used under the same conditions.

    Please note that Abcam does not have data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.

  • ab51074 at 1/500 staining human kidney tissue sections by IHC-P. The tissue was formaldehyde fixed and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step (in Tris/EDTA) was performed. The tissue was then blocked with serum and incubated with the primary antibody. A biotinylated donkey anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary.
