M6308B04_PURE_MMP2_Antibody_WB_092915
Recombinant human MMP2 treated with (lane 3; 50 ng) and without (lane 2; 50 ng) 1 mM of p-aminophenylmercuric acetate (APMA) and recombinant mouse MMP2 (lane 1; 50 ng) were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with purified monoclonal anti-MMP2 (clone M6308B04) antibody. Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse-IgG secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and chemiluminescence detection.

Description

MMP2, also named gelatinase A and MMP-2, is a member of matrix metalloproteinase family of proteins (MMPs). MMPs are structurally related enzymes that contain zinc that degrade the extracellular matrix and connective tissue proteins in normal physiological processes such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling as well as in disease processes such as arthritis and metastasis. MMP2 consists of a prodomain, which is cleaved upon activation, a catalytic domain containing the zinc binding site, a fibronectin-like domain (that plays a role in the substrate targeting), and a carboxyl-terminal (hemopexin-like repeats) domain. The activation of MMP2 requires proteolytic processing starting first with a complex of membrane type 1 MMP (MT1-MMP) and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 2 recruits pro-MMP2 from the extracellular milieu to the cell surface. The second step of the process is MMP2 activating by active MT1-MMP and subsequent autocatalytic cleavage. Substrates of MMP2 include type IV collagen, aggrecan, link protein, decorin, fibronectin, and type X and XI collagens, which all are components of the articular cartilaginous matrix. Importantly, MMP2 secretion is elevated in several types of human cancers and its elevated expression has been associated with a poor prognosis. Mutations in the MMP2 gene are associated with Torg-Winchester syndrome, multicentric osteolysis, arthritis syndrome, and possibly keloids. MMP2 deficient mice exhibit slightly delayed growth, reduced neovascularization, retarded tumor progression, an exaggerated asthma response to allergens, and impaired branching morphogenesis of the mammary gland.

Antigen Details

Structure
Monomer. Human MMP2 contains 660 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 73.9 kD. Upon activation by p-aminophenylmercuric acetate (APMA), it has a predicted molecular weight of 62 kD.
Distribution

MMP2 is expressed by fibroblasts, endothelial cells, alveolar epithelial cells, and macrophages.

Function
MMP2 is a metalloproteinase that specifically cleaves type IV collagen, which is the major structural component of basement membranes. MMP2 is thought to contribute to the invasion and the metastasis of various human malignancies.
