MMP-2 (catalytic domain) (human), (recombinant)

BML-SE237-0010 10 µg 506.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Represents a naturally occurring active form of MMP-2 which lacks the C-terminal hemopexin domain. MMPs lacking this domain cannot cleave native collagens; however, activity toward other targets such as gelatin, casein, or peptide substrates is unaffected.

Product Details

Alternative Name:Matrix metalloproteinase 2, Gelatinase A, 72 kDa Type IV collagenase
Source:Produced in yeast. Active recombinant matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2, gelatinase A, 72kDa type IV collagenase) cloned from human cDNA. The enzyme consists of residues Tyr110-Asp452, which comprises the catalytic/fibronectin domain of human MMP-2, with a C-terminal purification tag.
UniProt ID:P08253
Gene/Protein Identifier:NM_004530 (RefSeq)
Formulation:Liquid. In 50mM TRIS-HCl, pH 7.5, containing 300mM NaCl, 5mM CaCl2, 20µM ZnCl2, 0.05% Brij-35 and 20% glycerol.
Purity:≥90% (SDS-PAGE)
Purity Detail:Purified by multi-step chromatography.
Activity:Preincubation of MMP-2 catalytic domain at 5nM with the broad-spectrum inhibitor GM6001 (Prod. No. BML-EI300) at 30nM for 1 hour completely inhibits enzymatic activity.
Specific Activity:≥200 pmol/min/µg at 37°C using the colorimetric thiopeptolide Ac-Pro-Leu-Gly-S-Leu-Leu-Gly-OEt (100 µM; Prod. No. BML-P125) as substrate.
Application Notes:Useful tool to study enzyme kinetics, cleave target substrates, and screen for inhibitors.
Shipping:Dry Ice
Long Term Storage:-80°C
Use/Stability:The enzyme is stable on ice for at least several hours.  However, it is recommended that thawing and dilution of the enzyme be done within as short a time as possible before start of the assay.  After initial defrost, aliquot product into individual tubes and refreeze at -70°C.  Avoid repeated freeze/defrost cycles.
NOTE: When stored under the above conditions, this enzyme is stable at the concentration supplied, in its current storage buffer. Procedures such as dilution of the enzyme followed by refreezing could lead to loss of activity.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
