Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesIHC-P: 1/50 (See abreview).
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 54 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionCan degrade fibronectin, laminin, gelatins of type I, III, IV, and V; collagens III, IV, X, and IX, and cartilage proteoglycans. Activates procollagenase.
    • 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.
    • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.

    • ab63853 staining MMP3 in Human breast carcinoma tissue sections by IHC-P (formaldehyde fixed paraffin embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked by 5 minutes of peroxidase block then 10 minutes of protein block. Antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Retrieval solution. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/50) for 45 minutes at 20°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated Goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG was used as secondary antibody.
