The protein derived from the whole cell lysate of A-431 was resolved onto 10% SDS-PAGE, transferred to NC membrane, followed by an immunoblotting with MMP9 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB12714) at 1 : 1000.
Immunohistochemical staining of human placenta stained with MMP9 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB12714) at 1 : 100 for 10 min at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissue requires boiling tissue sections in 10 mM Citrate Buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
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 this gene 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.
