synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal of human matrix metalloproteinase-23 (MIFR-2, CA-MMP).

General description

Matrix metalloproteinase-23B (MMP-23B) possesses regions which are rich in amino acids like proline and cysteine. The MMP-23B gene is localized on human chromosome 1p36.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 50% glycerol and 15 mM sodium azide


Reacts with reduced and non-reduced MMP-23. Recognizes the pro-form and active forms of MMP-23 as well as a series of further cleaved active forms. The hemopexin domain is removed from the smallest active form of MMP-23 and the antibody does not detect this form.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Matrix metalloproteinase-23B (MMP-23B) is part of the matrix metalloproteinase family of proteins, which take part in the remodeling of the extracellular matrix.
