72 kDa type IV collagenase, 72 kDa gelatinase, Gelatinase A, Matrix metalloproteinase-2, MMP-2, TBE-1, MMP2, CLG4A, CLG4, MONA, MMP-II.
MMP-2 or gelatinase A, is secreted by fibroblasts, cardiomyocytes, and myofibroblasts. MMP-2 has a broad feild of substrates, that contain elastin, collagen, fibroblast growth factor, endothelin, MMP-9, plasminogen, MMP-13 and TGF-beta, pointing towards bread roles of MMP-2. MMP-2 activity boosts at day four post-MI and attains a maximum by day seven.
MMP2 Mouse produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 644 amino acids (30-662 aa) and having a molecular mass of 72.4kDa.
MMP2 is fused to a 11 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The MMP2 solution (0.25 mg/ml) contains 10% Glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
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 85.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
