MMP-8Protein Product Information
Synonym:CLG1, HNC, PMNL-CL, MMP8
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human MMP8 (NP_002415.1) (Met 1-Gly 467) was expressed, fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Species:Human
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
MMP-8Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to cleave the fluorogenic peptide substrate, Mca-PLGL-Dpa-AR-NH2 (AnaSpec, Catalog#27076) . The specific activity is > 250 pmoles/min/μg .
Activity Assay Protocol.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Phe 21
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human MMP8 consists of 458 amino acids after removal of the signal peptide and has a predicted molecular mass of 52.6 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rhMMP8 is approximately 65-75 kDa due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 50mM Tris, 10mM CaCl2, 150mM NaCl, pH 7.5
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
MMP-8Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Background

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc-dependent endopeptidases that degrade components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and play essential roles in various physiological processes such as morphogenesis, differentiation, angiogenesis and tissue remodeling, as well as pathological processes including inflammation, arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases and tumor invasion. Neutrophil collagenase, also known as Matrix metalloproteinase-8, MMP-8, and CLG1, is a member of the peptidase M10A family. MMP-8 may affect the metastatic behaviour of breast cancer cells through protection against lymph node metastasis, underlining the importance of anti-target identification in drug development. MMP-8 in the tumour may have a protective effect against lymph node metastasis. MMP-8 may affect the metastatic behaviour of breast cancer cells through protection against lymph node metastasis, underlining the importance of anti-target identification in drug development. MMP-8 participates in wound repair by contributing to the resolution of inflammation and open the possibility to develop new strategies for treating wound healing defects.
