  • Function

    Degrades collagen type I. Does not act on gelatin or casein. Could have a role in tumoral process.
  • Tissue specificity

    Seems to be specific to breast carcinomas.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in MMP13 are the cause of spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia Missouri type (SEMD-MO) [MIM:602111]. A bone disease characterized by moderate to severe metaphyseal changes, mild epiphyseal involvement, rhizomelic shortening of the lower limbs with bowing of the femora and/or tibiae, coxa vara, genu varum and pear-shaped vertebrae in childhood. Epimetaphyseal changes improve with age.
    Defects in MMP13 are the cause of metaphyseal anadysplasia type 1 (MANDP1) [MIM:602111]. Metaphyseal anadysplasia consists of an abnormal bone development characterized by severe skeletal changes that, in contrast with the progressive course of most other skeletal dysplasias, resolve spontaneously with age. Clinical characteristics are evident from the first months of life and include slight shortness of stature and a mild varus deformity of the legs. Patients attain a normal stature in adolescence and show improvement or complete resolution of varus deformity of the legs and rhizomelic micromelia.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
  • 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.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.

Customer reviews and Q&As


My sincere apologies for the delay in replying to you, we have tried to find out if the epitope has been mapped but I can confirm that it has not been mapped and therefore we do not know which portion of MMP13 is recognized by the antibody. Sorry I couldn't help you more,
