synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal end of human matrix metalloproteinase-9 (gelatinase-B).

General description

Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is a zinc-dependent proteinase which is also known as 92kDa gelatinase-B. It is expressed by various cells like granulocytes and mononuclear cells. The gene encoding it is localized on human chromosome 20q11.2-q13.1 and has 13 exons.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 50% glycerol and 0.05% sodium azide.


By immunoblotting against the reduced protein, the antibody reacts with bands at 92 kDa and 88 kDa (the pro-form and active form). The antibody performs best on reduced proteins, but will react with non-reduced MMP-9. When used on reduced samples from tissue culture media, the antibody also recognizes a band at 65 kDa, which may be removed by enriching the gelatinase on gelatin-agarose.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) has been studied as a biomarker of nervous tissue inflammation in multiple sclerosis (MS).
