Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/500. Detects a band of approximately 54 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC/IF or IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      Degrades amelogenin, the major protein component of the enamel matrix and two of the macromolecules characterizing the cartilage extracellular matrix: aggrecan and the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP). May play a central role in tooth enamel formation.
    • Tissue specificity

      Expressed specifically in the enamel organ.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in MMP20 are the cause of amelogenesis imperfecta hypomaturation type 2A2 (AI2A2) [MIM:612529]. AI2A2 is an autosomal recessive defect of enamel formation. The disorder involves both primary and secondary dentitions. The teeth have a shiny agar jelly appearance and the enamel is softer than normal. Brown pigment is present in middle layers of enamel.
    • 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

      Autoactivates at least at the 107-Asn-
      -Tyr-108 site.
    • Cellular localization

      Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
