Proteins of the matrix metalloprotease (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 disease processes such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP’s are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat, horse, rabbit
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 465 of rat MMP-3
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
0.5 mg/ml purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the MMP-3 of human, mouse, rat, horse, and rabbit origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested. The antibody detects the 55 kDa full length and the 21 kDa cleavage fragment of MMP-3.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
