Under non-reducing conditions, it recognizes proteins of 92 kDa and 86 kDa which are identified as pro (latent) and active forms of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9; also known as 92 kDa and collagenase IV or gelatinase B) of human MMP-9. MAB13415 reacts with the complex (~200 kDa) of MMP-9 and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP-1; Nikkari et al., 1996). It shows no cross-reaction with pro and active forms of MMP-2 (Nikkari et al., 1996). Clone GE-213 also shows very low reactivity to mouse MMP-9 proteins by western blot, but at high enough antibody and antigen concentrations some detection is possible. Mouse immunhistochemistry is untested. Cellular Localization: Peripheral cytoplasmic.


Purified human gelatinase B.


Anti-MMP-9 Antibody, clone GE-213 is an antibody against MMP-9 for use in IP, WB & IH.

Immunohistochemistry (Acetone-fixed frozen; Hurskainen, 1996): 1:100 for 30 minutes at room temperature

Immunoprecipitation: 2-5 μg/mg protein lysate (use protein G to precipitate immune complex).

Inhibition of MMP-9 Activity: 2-4μg/mL (Visscher, 1994)

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.

Physical form

Format: Purified

Purified from ascites fluid by Protein G chromatography. Liquid in 10 mM PBS, pH 7.4, with 0.2% BSA and 0.09% sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

Maintain at 2-8°C in undiluted aliquots for up to 12 months from date of receipt.

During shipment, small volumes of product will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial. For products with volumes of 200μL or less, we recommend gently tapping the vial on a hard surface or briefly centrifuging the vial in a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container′s cap.
