Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use at an assay dependent dilution. Detects a band of approximately 92 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 78 kDa).
Sandwich ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Mouse monoclonal [SB15c] to MMP9 (ab51203). For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Detection at 0.5µg/ml with ab51203 as Capture.


  • FunctionMay play an essential role in local proteolysis of the extracellular matrix and in leukocyte migration. Could play a role in bone osteoclastic resorption. Cleaves KiSS1 at a Gly-
    -Leu bond. Cleaves type IV and type V collagen into large C-terminal three quarter fragments and shorter N-terminal one quarter fragments. Degrades fibronectin but not laminin or Pz-peptide.
  • Tissue specificityProduced by normal alveolar macrophages and granulocytes.
  • Involvement in diseaseIntervertebral disc disease
    Metaphyseal anadysplasia 2
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 3 fibronectin type-II domains.
    Contains 4 hemopexin repeats.
  • 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
    Processing of the precursor yields different active forms of 64, 67 and 82 kDa. Sequentially processing by MMP3 yields the 82 kDa matrix metalloproteinase-9.
    N- and O-glycosylated.
