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 produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 694 amino acids (20-707a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 77.1 kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 70-100kDa). MMP9 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
MMP9 protein solution ( 0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) 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 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
