MMP9, or MMP-9, is a member of the matrix metalloprotease family of proteins (MMPs). Members of this family are structurally related, zinc-containing enzymes that degrade the extracellular matrix (ECM) and connective tissue proteins. Proteolytic activities of MMPs play an important role in vascular remodeling, cellular migration, and the processing of ECM proteins and adhesion molecules. MMP9 consists of a prodomain, catalytic domain, hinge region, and a hemopexin domain. It is secreted as an inactive zymogen that becomes activated extracellularly. The most relevant natural activators of proMMP9 are unknown. MMP9 activation may be mediated by removal of the prodomain by serine proteases or other MMPs, or it may be a direct response to oxidative stress that disrupts the cysteine switch. MMP9 is capable of processing cytokines and chemokines. For example, it is reported to release the biologically active form of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which indicates that MMP9 may play a crucial role in the formation of new blood vessels. Increased MMP9 expression and activity has been shown to be related to various cancers, as it may contribute to the release of metastatic cells from the bulk tumor as well as their entrance at the site of metastasis by degrading proteins in the ECM and basement membrane.Product Details

ELISA Detection - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For use as an ELISA detection antibody, a concentration of 0.25µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of human MMP-9 protein ranging from 5 to 0.078 ng/ml are recommended for each ELISA plate when paired with M2101G05 (Cat. No. 681802). It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA Detection: The biotinylated M2108F07 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with purified M2101G05 (Cat. No. 681802) antibody as the capture antibody.
Note: For testing human MMP-9 in serum or plasma, BioLegend's LEGEND MAX™ Kit (Cat. No. 444907) is specially developed and recommended.
