Description

General description

The matrix metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3, stromelysin-1) exhibits a number of activities that would make it a particularly good tumor promoter. Similar to several other MMPs, MMP-3 was first cloned and later recloned as a cancer-specific gene. In addition to degrading numerous extracellular matrix components, MMP-3 can activate gelatinase B, the collagenases and several serpin-type serine proteinase inhibitors. Moreover, it can release a number of cell surface molecules, including Ecadherin, a known contributor to cancer development.

Features and Benefits

Compatible with high-throughput handling systems.

Suitability

Suitable to screen inhibitors of MMP-3.

Principle

In the MMP-3 Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit, MMP-3 hydrolyzes a specific FRET substrate to release the quenched fluorescent group Mca, which can be detected fluorometrically ( λex = 325nm/λem = 393nm). The kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive, and reliable test suitable as a high throughput screening assay of MMP-3 inhibition.
