Methods in molecular biology (Clifton, N.J.)

Assay of matrix metalloproteinases against matrix substrates.


PMID 20135287

Abstract

The assays described allow the activity of members of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family that degrade collagen, gelatin and casein substrates to be measured. The protocols described include the preparation of radiolabeled substrates, methods for the separation of degraded product from undegraded substrate, and methods for the activation of MMPs. The advantages and disadvantages of these methods are discussed in relation to immunoassays that measure the amount of individual MMPs.
