MMP 8, Human


MMP 8, Human

(Neutrophil collagenase, EC, Matrix metalloproteinase-8, MMP-8, PMNL collagenase, PMNL-CL, HNC, CLG1.)

Full-length recombinant human neutrophil pro-collagenase (MMP-8), latent form. Matrix metalloproteinase 8 (MMP-8), or neutrophil collagenase, degrades interstitial collagens, acting preferentially on collagen type I. Increased full-length MMP-8 protein was associated with infiltration into the skin of neutrophils, which are the major cell type that expresses MMP-8. MMP-8 is synthesized and stored in specific granules in neutrophil leukocytes. MMP-8 activity is therefore regulated by factors such as surface-bound ligands (IgG or complement components) that release it through degranulation.Once released and activated through proteolytic or oxidative mechanisms, MMP-8 plays a major role in the connective tissue turnover that accompanies inflammatory processes.

Matrix Metalloproteinase-8 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain having a molecular mass of 75 kDa. The MMP-8 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Purity: Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Source: Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered clear solution.

Formulation: The MMP-8 protein solution (100 units/ml) in 0.05M Tris-HCl buffer, pH 7.6, 0.2M NaCl, 5mM CaCl2, 0.0025% NaN3 and 0.1% BSA.

MMP 8 General Information

Used as a standard for analyzing mammalian collagenase activity.

MMP-8 although stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
