WB Use at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 76 kDa.


  • Function

    Endopeptidase that degrades various components of the extracellular matrix. May activate progelatinase A.
  • Tissue specificity

    Appeared to be synthesized preferentially in liver, placenta, testis, colon and intestine. Substantial amounts are also detected in pancreas, kidney, lung, heart and skeletal muscle.
  • 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

Thank you for your enquiry. We do not have set expiration dates for our products. Most antibodies are stable and can last for anywhere from a few months to several years if stored properly, so we strongly recommend that you follow the storage instructions on the datasheet for the antibody you purchased. These conditions will vary among our antibodies, therefore, it is important to verify the storage conditions for each of our products when you receive them. We guarantee all of our products to work for at least six month from the date of purchase when stored correctly. For more information on antibody storage and stability, please visit our Antibody Storage Guide on our Protocols and Troubleshooting Tips page (https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=popular_protocols). I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.

Thank you for contacting us. I was informed that it was tested to pick up the extracellular domain of the recombinant protein. Unfortunately, we do not have the detailed epitope information available. We aim to provide as much information as possible to customers, so I am sorry that this has not been possible on this occasion. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
