Matrix metalloproteinase-9, MMP-9, 92 kDa gelatinase, Gelatinase B, GELB, MMP9, CLG4B.
MMP9 is part of the matrix metalloproteinase family. MMP enzymes take part in the dismantle of extracellular matrix in different physiological pathways, for instance wound healing, bone development, reproduction etc. the enzyme is also involved in pathological pathways: metastasis, arthritis and intracerebral hemorrhage.
MMP9 Mouse produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 717 amino acids (20-730 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 79.3 kDa. MMP9 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
MMP9 Mouse protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl pH-7.5, 10mM CaCl2, 100mM NaCl, 0.05% Brij35 and 10% glycerol.
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.
Defined as the amount of enzyme that cleaves 1pmol of Mca-PLGLDpa-AR-NH2 per minute at pH 7.5 at 25C. Specific activity is > 500 pmol/min/ug.
