ALX-201-105-C010 10 µg 989.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Activation generates two molecular species. One species begins at the N-terminus with Tyr156 of full-length MMP-24, while the other species is two aa residues shorter and starts with Leu158. Both species extend to Ser351 of MMP-24 and contain an additional His-tag sequence at the C-terminus.

Measurement of catalytic activity

1 Preparation and stability of solutions:

  • Peptide hydrolysis buffer: 50mM TRIS-HCl, pH 7.5, 150mM NaCl, 5mM CaCl2, 0.025% Brij 35. Solution is stable for several weeks at 4°C.
  • Stock solution of peptide substrate: 100µM solution of Mca-Pro-Leu-Gly-Leu-Dpa-Ala-Arg in 20% DMSO. Store at -20°C.
  • Stock solution of unquenched peptide: 10µM solution of (7-methoxycoumarin-4-yl)acetyl-Pro-Leu-NH2 (Mca-Pro-Leu) in 20% DMSO. Store at -20°C.

2 Assay protocol:

  • The activity of MMP-24 is measured fluorimetrically with a synthetic internally quenched fluorescent substrate according to Knight et al.
  • An excitation wavelength of 328nm and an emission wavelength of 393nm are set in an appropriate fluorimeter. The instrument is calibrated with the unquenched peptide Mca-Pro-Leu at a concentration corresponding to between 2 and 10% hydrolysis of the protease substrate. Kinetic reactions are conveniently carried out in a constant volume of 2.5ml.
  • The substrate Mca-Pro-Leu-Gly-Leu-Dpa-Ala-Arg is diluted in peptide hydrolysis buffer to a concentration of 0.8µM and equilibrated at a temperature of 37°C.
  • Aliquots of 2 to 4µl of the activation mixture are than added and the increase in fluorescence is recorded over a time interval between 2 and 12 minutes.
  • Activity units per ml enzyme solution are calculated according to the following equation:

    Activity (U/ml) = (CMca-Pro-Leu/FMca-Pro-Leu) x (δFMca-Pro-Leu-Gly-Leu-Dpa-Ala-Arg/Venzyme) x Vtotal

    CMca-Pro-Leu: Concentration of Mca-Pro-Leu used for calibration of the fluorimeter (µmoles/ml).
    FMca-Pro-Leu: Fluorescence of Mca-Pro-Leu at the concentration CMca-Pro-Leu used for fluorimeter calibration.
    δFMca-Pro-Leu-Gly-Leu-Dpa-Ala-Arg: Change in fluorescence during peptide hydrolysis per min.
    Vtotal: Volume of peptide hydrolysis reaction (2.5ml).
    Venzyme: Volume of added enzyme (0.002 to 0.004ml).

3 Inhibitors:
The catalytic domain of MMP-24 is inhibited by tissue inhibitors of MMP-2 (TIMP-2) and by chelators of divalent cations like EDTA or o-phenanthroline.
