|MMP19, MMP18, RASI|
|A DNA sequence encoding the catalytic domain of human MMP19 (Q99542-1) (Leu101-Gly256) was expressed, with a N-terminal Met.|
|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.
|> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Please contact us for more information.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant human MMP19 consists of 157 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 17.6 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 18 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 20mM Tris, 100mM NaCl, 0.5M Arg, 5mM CaCl2, 0.03% Brij35, 50uM ZnCl2, 1/0.1mM GSH/GSSG, pH 8.0|
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.
|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.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
MMP19, also known as RASI-1, is a member of the peptidase M10A family. It contains 4 hemopexin-like domains and is expressed in mammary gland, placenta, lung, pancreas, ovary, small intestine, spleen, thymus, prostate, testis colon, heart and blood vessel walls. It is a matrix metalloproteinase (MMP). Proteins of the 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 in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. MMP19 may play a role in pathological processes participating in rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-associated joint tissue destruction. Autoantigen anti-MMP19 are frequent in RA patients.
