  • Applications

    Functional Studies

    SDS-PAGE

    Western blot

  • Form
    Liquid
  • Additional notes

    Mouse-MMP9 degrades denatured collagen (gelatin), and a range of extracellular matrix components in-vivo. Unlike MMP2, MMP9 is not constituitively produced by most normal cells, although the enzyme is often over expressed by transformed cells, tumor cells, and cells treated with the phorbol ester PMA. An endogenous inhibitor to MMP9, TIMP1, is often complexed with the enzyme in-vivo, but has been removed from this preparation.

  • Function
    May 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 specificity
    Produced by normal alveolar macrophages and granulocytes.
  • Involvement in disease
    Intervertebral disc disease
    Metaphyseal anadysplasia 2
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 3 fibronectin type-II domains.
    Contains 4 hemopexin repeats.
  • Domain
    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.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    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.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix.
  • Information by UniProt

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    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.
