MMP14 antibody was raised against peptide (aa 319-333, CDGNFDTVAMLRGEM) in the hemopexin-like domain of human membrane Type1 matrix metalloproteinase human MT1-MMP also referred to as MMP-14. Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Gorilla, Orangutan, Gibbon, Monkey, Marmoset, Mouse, Rat, Sheep, Goat, Hamster, Porcine, Bovine, Opossum, Platypus (100%); Elephant, Panda, Stickleback, Turkey, Bat, Dog, Horse, Rabbit, Chicken, Pufferfish (93%); Zebrafish, Xenopus, Medaka (87%); Lizard (80%).
Recognizes human MT1-MMP. Very slight cross-reactivity to hMMP-3. Species cross-reactivity: Mouse, rat, rabbit porcine and equine. For unknown reasons this antibody does not react on westerns to MMP-14 [MT1-MMP], Human, Prodomain, Catalytic Domain.
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry, and Immunoprecipitation. Western Blot: 10 ug/ml, membrane preparations; MD-MB-231 cells pretreated with 1-5 ug/ml ConA for 24-48 hours for positive control. 60-65kD proteins are identified. When tested against recombinant MT1-MMP (lacking the TM domain) expressed in CHO cells the antibody reacts with a band of ~59kD. Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections; traditional formalin fixation problematic. Paraffin-embedded tissue sections with PLP fixation required.
PBS, pH 7.0, 2% BSA (protease free).
Short term: 4°C. Long term: Store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
