synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal end of the catalytic zinc site of human matrix metalloproteinase-7 (matrilysin, PUMP).

General description

Matrix metallopeptidase 7 (MMP-7) is also known as matrilysin and expressed in tumor cells. It possesses many α-helices and β-sheets, with an active domain. The gene is localized on human chromosome 11q21-q22.

Physical form

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


Reacts with reduced and non-reduced MMP-7.


Anti-matrix metalloproteinase-7, N-terminal of catalytic zinc site antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunohistochemistry and Western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Matrix metallopeptidase 7 (MMP-7) is a proteolytic enzyme which acts on fibronectin, laminin and collagen type IV. It can also activate other metalloproteinases like MMP-2 and MMP-9. MMP-7 plays an important role in the growth of cancerous cells.
