Full length protein corresponding to Mouse MMP9.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab38898 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||1/100 - 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|IHC-Fr||1/1000. (see Abreview submitted by Greg Gibson)|
|WB||1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 92 kDa. When using colorimetric substrates such as BCIP/NBT use at a 1/5000 dilution (for chemiluminescent substrates). Detects a band of approximately 92-95 kDa (pro-form) and 82kDa (active form) (Human samples). Mouse MMP9 is larger, and on SDS PAGE gels runs about 102-105 kDa. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ELISA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IHC-FoFr||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 19295156|
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-Tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 60 minutes before being transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour before being incubated with anti-MMP9 antibody (ab38898; 2 microgram per mL) overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using infrared labelled goat anti-rabbit (green) antibody (diluted 1:20000) for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
ab38898 detects recombinant Human MMP9 running at ~85 kDa, and endogenous full-length MMP9 in LPS-stimulated cells at ~100 kDa. This antibody also detects a band at 90 kDa in U937 PMA-treated cells.
ab38898 was incubated at 5 ug/mL and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) was diluted at 0.1 ug/mL and both were incubated for 48 hours at 4°C. Blots were developed with goat anti-rabbit IgG (H + L) and goat anti-mouse IgG (H + L) secondary antibodies at 1/10 000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

ab38898 staining MMP9 (red) in Mouse Neutrophils and Monocytes cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 2%BSA + 0.2% tritonX100 in PBS. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in 2%BSA + 0.2% tritonX100 in PBS) for 25 minutes at 23°C. An Alexa Fluor® 568-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. DAPI is stained blue
ab38898 at a 1/1000 dilution staining mouse heart tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections). The tissue was removed from a mouse, rinsed in PBS and slowly frozen in supercooled isopentane. 14um sections were made using a cryostat. The sections were acetone fixed and blocked in 2% BSA prior to incubation with the MMP9 antibody. A Cy3 conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody (ab6939) was used as the secondary antibody. In the image: red staining = MMP9, blue staining = nuclei, green = gelatinase activity.
