synthetic peptide corresponding to the propeptide region of human matrix metalloproteinase-12 (macrophage elastase).

General description

Matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP-12) is also called as macrophage metalloelastase and is secreted by inflammatory macrophages. It is synthesized as a zymogen and then activated by cleaving the propeptide domain. The MMP-12 gene is localized on human chromosome 11.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 50% glycerol and 15 mM sodium azide.


The antibody recognizes only the latent form of MMP-12 and not the active forms. May be used to distinguish the zymogen and the activated enzyme.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP-12) is involved in breaking down proteoglycans, collagen type IV and laminin. Its main substrate is elastin.
