Matrix metalloproteinase-14 (MMP14), is a membrane-anchored zinc-binding endopeptidase which is expressed at the leading edge of different invasive carcinomas and also promotes tumor cell invasion through degradation of the extracellular matrix. MMP14 takes a vital part in extracellular matrix, ECM, remodeling by having the capability to degrade type I collagen, activate pro-MMP-2 and process cell adhesion molecules for instance CD44 and integrin alpha V. MMP14 is a key enzyme in many physiological as well as pathological processes for example angiogenesis & tumor invasion.
Matrix Metalloproteinase-14 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non- glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 264 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 29.6kDa.
MMP14 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
MMP14 is supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution conteining 20mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.4, 30 % glycerol, 300mM NaCl, 3mM CaCl2 and 10μM ZnCl2.
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 95.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
