Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/250.
WB 1/500. Detects a band of approximately 54 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionDegrades amelogenin, the major protein component of the enamel matrix and two of the macromolecules characterizing the cartilage extracellular matrix: aggrecan and the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP). May play a central role in tooth enamel formation.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed specifically in the enamel organ.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MMP20 are the cause of amelogenesis imperfecta hypomaturation type 2A2 (AI2A2) [MIM:612529]. AI2A2 is an autosomal recessive defect of enamel formation. The disorder involves both primary and secondary dentitions. The teeth have a shiny agar jelly appearance and the enamel is softer than normal. Brown pigment is present in middle layers of enamel.
    • 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
      Autoactivates at least at the 107-Asn-
      -Tyr-108 site.
