ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • Function
    Endopeptidase that degrades various components of the extracellular matrix. May activate progelatinase A.
  • Tissue specificity
    Appeared to be synthesized preferentially in liver, placenta, testis, colon and intestine. Substantial amounts are also detected in pancreas, kidney, lung, heart and skeletal muscle.
  • 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.
  • Post-translational
    The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.

Anti-MMP15 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab15475 stained Jeg3 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 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 (ab15475, 5g/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, Dylight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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

Following correspondence with the source of this antibody I have determined that whilst this antibody has not been tested for potential cross reactivity the immunogen sequence shows no homology with other MT-MMPs. I hope this information helps, plea...
