HRP-1225 Recombinant Human MMP13 Protein $200

Recombinant Human MMP13 Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human MMP13 Protein
Catalog #:  HRP-1225
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins, which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The protein encoded by human MMP13 gene cleaves type II collagen more efficiently than types I and III. It may be involved in articular cartilage turnover and cartilage pathophysiology associated with osteoarthritis. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes, which localize to chromosome 11q22.3.

Full-length active human collagenase 3 domain (MMP13) cDNA (104 – 471 aa, derived from BC074807) was constructed with codon optimization and expressed with a small T7-His-TEV cleavage site Tag (29aa) fusion at its N-terminal. This protein is expressed in E.coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
