General description

ZooMAb® antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb® antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb® antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user
Anti-MMP14, clone LEM-2/15.8 ZooMAb®, Cat. No. ZMS1060, is a recombinant Mouse monoclonal antibody that targets MMP14 and is tested for use in Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.

Target description

Matrix metalloproteinase-14 (UniProt: P50281; also known as EC:, MMP-14, MMP-X1, Membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 1, MT-MMP 1, MTMMP1, Membrane-type-1 matrix metalloproteinase, MT1-MMP, MT1MMP) is encoded by the MMP14 gene (Gene ID: 4323) in human. MMPs are a family zinc-dependent endoproteinases that degrade collagen and other structural proteins and are responsible for much of the turnover of matrix components. Each MMP contains a protease domain with a conserved HExGHxxGxxHS/T sequence, where three histidine residues form a complex with a catalytic Zinc atom. A regulatory domain with a conserved PRCGxPD motif helps to maintain MMPs in their latent form by binding of the cysteine residue to the active site Zn. MMP-14 is a single-pass type I membrane protein that is expressed in stromal cells of colon, breast, head, and neck. It is a membrane type matrix metalloproteinase (MT-MMP) that is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-20) and a propeptide (aa 21-111) that are subsequently cleaved off to generate the active mature form. The propeptide maintains it in a latent state. The mature enzyme contains an extracellular domain (aa 112-541), a transmembrane domain (aa 542-562), and a cytoplasmic domain (aa 563-582). MMP14 contains four hemopexin domains within its extracellular domain and a cysteine switch (aa 91-98). The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the release of propeptide activates the enzyme. This ZooMAb® recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.

Physical form

Purified recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS, 5% Trehalose, normal appearance a coarse or translucent resin. The PBS/trehalose components in the ZooMAb formulation can have the appearance of a semi-solid (bead like gel) after lyophilization. This is a normal phenomenon. Please follow the recommended reconstitution procedure in the data sheet to dissolve the semi-solid, bead-like, gel-appearing material. The resulting antibody solution is completely stable and functional as proven by full functional testing. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.


300 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.

Storage and Stability

Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
