    Western blot analysis of 50 ng recombinant human MMP8 untreated (lane 1), 50 ng MMP8 activated with 1mM p-aminophenylmercuric acetate (APMA) for 45 minutes (lane 2), 15 µg human Neutrophil (lane 3) and 15 µg mouse bone marrow (lane 4). Purified anti-MMP8 antibody (clone 1502022) was used, followed by HRP anti-mouse IgG antibody.

    IHC staining of purified anti‐MMP8 antibody (clone 1502022) on formalin‐fixed paraffin‐embedded normal human spleen. After antigen retrieval using sodium citrate, the tissue was incubated with the primary antibody at 0.5 µg/ml for 24 hours at 4°C. BioLegend’s Ultra Streptavidin (USA) HRP Detection Kit was used for detection followed by hematoxylin counterstaining.

MMP-8, also termed neutrophil collagenase, is a member of the matrix metalloproteinase family proteins (MMPs). Members of this family are zinc-containing enzymes that degrade the extracellular matrix (ECM) and connective tissue proteins. Substrates of MMP-8 include type I, II, and III triple-helical collagens, gelatin peptides, proteoglycans, fibronectin, aggrecan, substance P, serpins, β-casein, and angiotensin. MMP-8 is released by neutrophils upon IL-1β, IL-8, GM-CSF and TNF-α stimulation. Besides playing a role in phagocytosis, MMP-8 has been implicated in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) because of its high efficiency in infiltrating connective tissue and breaking down ECM. In fact, serum level of MMP-8 is a strong predictor of mortality in RA, as this is consistent with increased activation of neutrophils in RA. In addition, MMP-8 has been shown to play a crucial role in cardiovascular diseases by promoting atherosclerotic lesion formation. This is supported by the finding that MMP-8 knockout mice have less endothelial cells or plaque angiogenesis in the atherosclerotic plaques. In a clinical study, it was shown that the ratio of MMP-9/TIMP-1, as well as MMP-8 serum levels, could be a useful predictor of prognosis in patients with hepatocellular carcinomas.
