  • Function
    Seems to specifically activate progelatinase A. May thus trigger invasion by tumor cells by activating progelatinase A on the tumor cell surface. May be involved in actin cytoskeleton reorganization by cleaving PTK7.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in stromal cells of colon, breast, and head and neck. Expressed in lung tumors.
  • 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.
  • Post-translational
    The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane. Melanosome. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of MCF7 (Human breast adenocarcinoma epithelial cell, Left) / HT-1080 (Human fibrosarcoma epithelial cell, Right) cells labeling MMP14 with ab51074 at 1/200 dilution (0.1 μg) (red). Goat anti-rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at 1/2000 dilution. Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) / black was used as the isotype control. Cells incubated with secondary antibody only (blue) was used as the unlabeled control. Gated on viable cells.

    Positive control (Right panel): HT-1080 cells.

    Negative control (Left panel): MCF7 cells.

  • Ab51074 staining MMP14 in HT-1080 (human fibrosarcoma epithelial cell) cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence).

    Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. Samples were incubated with primary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (0.2 μg/ml). An Alexa Fluor® 488 Goat anti-rabbit (ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (2 μg/ml). Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594, ab195889) was used as the counterstain antibody at 1/200 dilution (2.5 μg/ml). DAPI was used as a nuclear counterstain. Confocal image showing cytoplasmic and weakly membranous staining in HT-1080 cell line.

    Negative control (bottom panels): MCF7 PMID: 19208838.

  • ab51074 (purified) at 1/20 dilution (2 µg) immunoprecipitating MMP14 in A431 (human epidermoid carcinoma) whole cell lysate.

    Lane 1: A431 whole cell lysate 10ug
    Lane 2: ab51074 + A431 whole cell lysate
    Lane 3: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) instead of ab51074 in A431 whole cell lysate

    For western blotting, ab131366 VeriBlot for IP (HRP) was used as the secondary antibody (1/1000).

    Blocking and diluting buffer and concentration: 5% NFDM/TBST.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab51074).

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human endometrium carcinoma tissue sections labeling MMP14 with purified ab51074 at 1/100 dilution (1.7 μg/ml). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using EDTA Buffer, PH9. Hematoxylin was used to counterstain. ab97051, a Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) secondary antibody was used at 1/500 dilution.

    PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the negative control (inset).

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab51074).

  • ab51074 (unpurified) at 1/500 staining human kidney tissue sections by IHC-P.

    The tissue was formaldehyde fixed and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step (in Tris/EDTA) was performed. The tissue was then blocked with serum and incubated with the primary antibody. A biotinylated donkey anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab51074).
