The BioAim Human MMP-9 EasyTestTM ELISA kit can quantitatively measure MMP-9 in human serum or plasma. It is a simple and rapid technology for the quantitation of antigen in a range of sample matrices. The whole process takes less than 1.5 hours with high accuracy and precision. EasyTestTM ELISA is faster and easier to perform than standard format ELISA with less reagent handling and fewer pipetting steps.Research Area Angiogenesis; Cancer Biomarker;
matrix metallopeptidase 9(MMP-9) Background: Matrix metallopeptidase 9 (MMP-9), also known as 92 kDa type IV collagenase, 92 kDa gelatinase or gelatinase B (GELB), is a matrixin, a class of enzymes that belong to the zinc-metalloproteinases family involved in the degradation of the extracellular matrix. In humans the MMP9 gene. Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, angiogenesis, bone development, wound healing, cell migration, learning and memory, as well as in pathological processes, such as arthritis, intracerebral hemorrhage, and metastasis. Most MMPs are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The enzyme encoded by this gene degrades type IV and V collagens and other extracellular matrix proteins. Studies in rhesus monkeys suggest that the enzyme is involved in IL-8-induced mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells from bone marrow, and murine studies suggest a role in tumor-associated tissue remodeling. Thrombospondins, intervertebral disc proteins, regulate interaction with matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) 2 and 9, which are key effectors of ECM remodeling.
