synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal of Xenopus matrix metalloproteinase-18 (Xenopus collagenase, collagenase-4)

General description

Matrix metalloproteinase-18 (MMP-18) is an interstitial collagenase which possesses a special insertion domain of 37 amino acids. It is made up of around 626 amino acids. During metamorphosis, MMP-18 is controlled in tissue-dependent way.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 50% glycerol and 15 mM sodium azide


Reacts with reduced and non-reduced MMP-18. Recognizes the pro-form and the active forms of MMP-18. By immunoblotting, the antibody reacts with bands at 53 kDa and 51 kDa (proform).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Matrix metalloproteinase-18 (MMP-18) plays an important role in the development of Xenopus laevis.
