Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab26832 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/5000. Predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa.|
FunctionMay be involved in tissue injury and remodeling. Has significant elastolytic activity. Can accept large and small amino acids at the P1' site, but has a preference for leucine. Aromatic or hydrophobic residues are preferred at the P1 site, with small hydrophobic residues (preferably alanine) occupying P3.
Tissue specificityFound in alveolar macrophages but not in peripheral blood monocytes.
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 localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
- Information by UniProt
FormThe presence of a 22kDa truncated active form of MMP-12 in vitro as well as in vivo due to the internal autolytic cleavage of the C-terminus.
- EC 220.127.116.11 antibody
- HME antibody
- Macrophage elastase antibody
Anti-MMP12 antibody (ab26832) at 1/5000 dilution + human MMP12 protein 400ng (1-33amino acids)
Developed using the ECL technique.
Predicted band size: 54 kDa
Observed band size: 15 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Different expression length of fusion protein will result in different MW of MMP 12.
