Description

General description

Matrix metalloproteinase-9/gelatinase B (MMP-9), a member of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family, is involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix giving it a role in normal physiological processes such as embryonic development, tissue remodeling, wound repair, vascularization and inflammatory response. MMP-9 is involved in synaptic plasticity. MMP-9 functions in modulating hippocampal synaptic physiology and plasticity.

Immunogen

Synthetic peptide directed towards the N terminal region of human MMP9

Application

Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Western Blotting (1 paper)

Rabbit polyclonal anti-MMP9 antibody is used to tag matrix metalloproteinase-9/gelatinase B for detection and quantitation by immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques. It is used as a probe to determine the presence and roles of matrix metalloproteinase-9/gelatinase B in processe such as synaptic plasticity.

Physical form

Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP′s are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The enzyme encoded by MMP9 degrades type IV and V collagens. Studies in rhesus monkeys suggest that the enzyme is involved in IL-8-induced mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells from bone marrow, and murine studies suggest a role in tumor-associated tissue remodeling.
