Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
The MMP-12 Fluorometric (also known as fluorimetric) Drug Discovery Kit, GREEN is a complete assay system designed to screen MMP-12 inhibitors using a quenched fluorogenic OMNIMMP® Green  substrate: 5-FAM-Arg-Pro-Lys-Pro-Val-Glu-Nva-Trp-Arg-Lys(TQ2W)-NH2 [5-FAM = 5-carboxyfluorescein; Nva=norvaline; TQ2W=quencher]. FAM fluorescence is thoroughly quenched by the TQ2W group until cleavage by MMPs separates the two moieties.

The assays are performed in a convenient 96-well microplate format. The kit is useful to screen inhibitors of MMP-12, a potential therapeutic target. The compound NNGH is also included as a prototypic control inhibitor.

Scientific Background:Matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP-12, metalloelastase, macrophage elastase, commonly confused with neutrophil elastase) is a member of the MMP family of extracellular proteases. These enzymes play a role in many normal and disease states by virtue of their broad substrate specificities. Targets of MMP-12 include elastin, fibronectin, laminin, plasminogen, u-PAR, and tissue factor pathway inhibitor. MMP-12 is secreted as a 53kDa proenzyme (as measured by SDS-PAGE), and activated by cleavage to forms of 45-22kDa.  MMP-12 is an important target for inhibitor screening due to its involvement in diseases such as cancer, allergy and emphysema.
Technical Info/Product Notes:NCBI Reference Sequence: NM_004994
The green fluorogenic MMP substrate provided in the kit offers key advantages over other MMP substrates. 1) Emission in the green region of the spectrum avoids the interference at lower wavelengths often exhibited by screening compounds, and by substances commonly found in biological samples and tissue culture medium. 2) The ultra-strong fluorescence of this substrate allows for substrate concentrations much lower than the Km, a condition generally desirable in inhibitor screening/kinetics assays.
