General description

MMP-3 (matrix metalloproteinase-3), also known as stromelysin-1, is a member of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family of zinc endopeptidases. MMP’s are required for removal of extracellular matrix machinery during embryo development, morphogenesis and tissue remodeling. Endogenous tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) are responsible for regulating MMP-3. Any disruption of this system can cause diseases such as arthritis, metastasis, atherosclerosis and tumor growth.


Other homologies: Mouse and rat (64% sequence homology).

This antibody recognizes MMP-3 at the N-terminus.


Epitope: N-terminus

KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to human N-terminal MMP-3.


Detect MMP-3 using this Anti-MMP-3 Antibody, N-terminus validated for use in WB, IH(P).

Immunohistochemistry Analysis: A 1:600 dilution from a previous lot detected MMP-3 in colorectal carcinoma and ductal carcinoma tissues.
