MMP-2 Inhibitor Screening Kit (Fluorometric)

for screening or characterizing MMP-2 inhibitors
Catalog #: K2017
$495.00

Product Details

Cat # +Size K2017-100
Size 100 assays
Kit Summary Matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) is a zinc-dependent endopeptidase family member that is capable of degrading denatured collagen, collagen type IV as well as other extracellular matrix proteins in normal physiological processes such as embryonic development, tissue remodeling and in disease processes including metastasis, atherosclerosis, cardiac dysfunction etc. MMP-2 is widely expressed in almost all cell types. Like most MMP's, MMP-2 is secreted as inactive pro-protein that is activated when cleaved by extracellular proteases. Additionally, MMP-2 can be activated intracellularly via S-Glutathionylation. BioVision’s MMP-2 Inhibitor Screening Kit provides a quick and sensitive way for screening, studying and characterizing potential inhibitors of MMP-2. In this assay, MMP-2 hydrolyzes a FRET-based MMP-2 substrate and releases the quenched fluorescent group, Mca, which can then be detected fluorometrically at Ex/Em = 325/393 nm. A potent, specific MMP-2 inhibitor is also included in the kit.
