Extensive Collagenase & Gelatinase Product Range

Collagenases (Matrix Metalloproteinase-1, MMP-8, and MMP-13) and gelatinases (MMP-2 and MMP-9) break down skin collagens, contributing to aging and wrinkling. Enzo offers high sensitivity colorimetric and fluorometric activity assays for screening collagenase and gelatinase inhibitors. Each assay is built using high purity active enzymes, and includes substrate, 96-well plate, and protocol.

MMP Assay Kits

Optimized Detection of MMP Inhibitors

Matrix Metalloproteinase (MMP) Inhibitor Profiling Kit Fluorometric RED

Inhibition of MMPs has been a target for inflammation, wound healing, skin aging, skin tone discoloration, rosacea, acne, and hair growth modulation. Our OmniMMP™ RED substrate offers key advantages over other substrates used for screening MMP inhibitors.

  • Emission spectrum avoids the interference at lower wavelengths often exhibited by certain screening compounds
  • Ultra-strong fluorescence allows for substrate concentrations much lower than the Km, which is desirable for inhibitor screening assays
  • Superior solubility characteristics compared with other MMP substrates
  • Convenient real-time kinetics of cleavage is easily determined
  • Includes active recombinant enzyme, substrate, and assay buffer

Inhibitor Dose-response Curve

NNGH was pre-incubated with MMP enzyme before reactions were started by the addition of substrate.


Screen For Inhibitors of Specific MMPs

Matrix Metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) Fluorometric Drug Discovery Kit, RED

  • Flexible platforms available for colorimetric and fluorometric detection
  • Sensitive detection for specific broad range of MMPs
  • Includes high quality substrate, enzyme and prototypic control inhibitor
