  • Product overview

    Abcam’s MMP8 Rat ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Rat MMP8 in serum, plasma (using heparin as an anticoagulant, EDTA and Citrate are not recommended), and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for MMP8 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and MMP8 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Rat MMP8 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of MMP8 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: Sandwich ELISAmore details
  • PlatformMicroplate


  • FunctionCan degrade fibrillar type I, II, and III collagens.
  • Tissue specificityNeutrophils.
  • 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 localizationCytoplasmic granule. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Stored in intracellular granules.

Thank you for your patience.

The lab let me know the following:

ab100609 : Cross reactivity with mouse is unknown. If it helps, the capture antibody is monoclonal and the detection antibody is polyclonal.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have contacted the lab regarding the cross-reactivity of the 2 kits and will let you know what I find out.

As for the testing discount program, we have the following general information:

Thank you for your enquiry.

ab100779 does not measure MMP8 activity. It is a sandwich ELISA assay that just quantitates amount of protein present.

I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.
