Matrix Metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13) is an enzyme that is a member of the MMP extracellular protease family. Extracellular protease enzymes, by virtue of their broad substrate specificities1, play a role in both normal and disease states of tissue proliferation. Among the targets of MMP-13 are collagen, gelatin, entactin, pro-TNF-a, and chemokine SDF-11-4.
MMP-13 is found in its latent form as a 52-56 kDa glycosylated proenzyme. Upon cleavage the 22-46 kDa5 MMP-1 becomes active in extracellular matrix remodeling.
Because of the prominent role that MMP-1 plays in cell migration and metastasis, it is an important target for inhibition screening.
MMP-13 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 391 amino acids (104-471 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 44.7 kDa. MMP-13 is fused to a 23 amino acid His Tag at N-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered clear solution.
The MMP-13 solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 10% glycerol, 0.15M NaCl and 1mM DTT.
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.
Greater than 85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
