MMP9 is a zinc-dependent enzymes capable of cleaving components of the extracellular matrix, which belongs to the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family. It is a gelatinase A, 92kDa type IV collagenase which can hydrolyze gelatin under certain conditions. Gelatin zymography is mainly used for the detection of the gelatinases, MMP-2 and MMP-9 and It is extremely sensitive because levels of 10pg of MMP-2 can already be detected. Briefly, various concentrations of recombinant pig MMP9 (1000 ng, 500 ng, 100 ng, 10 ng, 1ng, 0.1 ng) were denatured by SDS loading buffer, electrophoresed through sodium dodecylsulphate- polyacrylamide gel (SDS–PAGE; 10% gels) containing gelatin (1 mg/ml) with nonreducing conditions. After renaturation, incubation and CCB-stained, active MMP2 would hydrolyze gelatin nearby, which was indicated by the white binds on the gel. In the experiment, using a heat-denatured MMP9 protein was as a negative control, and blood sample was as a positive control.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
