1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Can degrade fibrillar type I, II, and III collagens.
Belongs to the peptidase M10A family. Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
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.
Cytoplasmic granule. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Stored in intracellular granules.
Immunofluorescence staining of HL-60 cells with purified ab81286 at a 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 4% PFA and permeabilized using 0.1% Triton X 100. The negative control is shown in bottom right hand panel - for the negative control, PBS was used instead of the primary antibody.
