ELISA (recommended work dilution= 1: 160,000)
Immunogen was recombinant protein derived from Human MMP1. This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with the immunogen. The IgG fraction of tissue culture supernatant was purified by Protein A/G affinity chromatography.
Product is supplied as a powder obtained from lyophilization of purified antibody in PBS without preservatives. Reconstitute the antibody with sterile 1 x PBS to a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
MMP-1 is a member of the large family of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) that degrades substrates, such as gelatin, nidogen, collagen type 3, collagen type 4, laminin-1, proteoglycans, elastin, etc. Most MMP proteins are activated after cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological pathway: embryonic development, reproduction, tissue remodeling. MMP also involves in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis.
The antibody specifically binds to human MMP1. Cross reactivity with mouse and rat were not tested.
Store at 4°C if intended for use within one month, otherwise, store at -20°C to -80°C. The lyophilized antibody is stable for at least 18 months after the date of receipt when stored at -20°C to -80°C. After reconstitution, it can also be aliquoted and stored frozen at -20°C to -80°C in a manual defrost freezer for 6 months without detectable loss of activity. Upon reconstitution, the antibody can also be stored for 30 days at 4°C. Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles, as this will lower the activity of the antibody.
