Human MMP7 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human MMP7 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of MMP7 protein (Cat: 10277-H01H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the active form of human MMP7 (NP_002414.1) (Tyr 95-Lys 267) was expressed with the fused Fc region of human IgG1 at the N-terminus.
The recombinant human Fc/MMP7 chimera is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 410 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 45.8 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the rh Fc/MMP7 monomer migrates as an approximately 55 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human MMP7 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

MMP7 Background Information
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc-dependent endopeptidases that degrade components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and play essential roles in various physiological and pathological processes such as morphogenesis, differentiation, angiogenesis, tissue remodeling, and tumor invasion. MMPs are synthesized as pro-enzymes and converted to active form by extracellular proteinases. MMP7, also referred to as matrilysin, is the smallest member of the MMP family and differs from other MMP members in that it lacks the C-terminal hemopexin-like domain. MMP7 is produced primarily by mucosal epithelia, and is capable of degrading various ECM proteins including proteoglycans, fibronectin, elastin and casein. This enzyme serves essential functions in both innate defense and wound healing, and appears to be one of the most important MMPs in human colon cancers. It has been reported that MMP7 contributes to tumor malignancy probably by cleaving cell surface proteins such as Fas ligand, degradation of IgG or inducing E-cadherin-mediated cell aggregation. In addition, matrilysin is also identified as a mediator of pulmonary fibrosis and a potential therapeutic target.
