Recombinant Human MMP2 (E. coli)

Cat. No.
Cat. No. Z101815
Name Recombinant Human MMP2 (E. coli)

MMP-2 belongs to a family of endoproteases which need calcium and zinc in order to exert their catalytic capability (extracellular matrix remodeling). The elevated expression of these enzymes has been linked to many degenerative disorders, such as arthritis, cancer metastasis and skeletal growth-plate disorders. It has been shown that MMP-2 associates with many connective tissue cells as well as neutrophils, macrophages and monocytes.

Formulation Supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris, CaCl2, NaCl and Brij­35
Reconstitution A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.
Storage The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70°C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Usage For research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.
