Introduction

MMP-1 (interstitial collagenase) can break down a wide range of substrates including types I, II, III, VII, VIII, and X collagens as well as L-Selectin, pro-TNF, IL-1?, IGFBP-3, IGFBP-5, casein, gelatin, ?1 antitrypsin, myelin basic protein, pro-MMP2 and pro-MMP9. A significant function of MMP-1 is the degradation of fibrillar collagens in extracellular matrix remodeling. MMP-1 is expressed in fibroblasts, keratinocytes, endothelial cells, monocytes and macrophages. MMP1 can be divided into a number of distinct domains: a prodomain which is cleaved on activation, a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site and a short hinge region with a carboxyl terminal domain. MMP1 is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.3.

Description

CST3 Mouse produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 126 amino acids (21-140 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 14.2kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 13.5-18kDa).
CST3 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Sf9, Baculovirus cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

CST3 protein solution (1mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.

Stability

Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. 
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. 
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
