Anti-MMP3 [1B4]


Catalogue Number 151620
Applications ELISA IHC IF IP WB
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Human matrix metalloproteinase 3 (MMP-3)
Reactivity Human
Relevance Human matrix metalloproteinase 3 (MMP-3) is a member of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) family that are peptidases involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix proteins. MMP-3 degrades fibronectin, laminin, gelatins of type I, III, IV, and V; collagen of type II, III, IV, X, and IX, and proteoglycans. In addition, MMP-3 can also activate other MMPs such as MMP-1, MMP-7, and MMP-9, rendering MMP-3 crucial in connective tissue remodeling. The enzyme is also thought to be involved in wound repair, progression of atherosclerosis, and tumor initiation.
