Anti-MMP13 Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Collagenase 3 (MMP13) is a secreted 452 residue protein which is released from cells as aninactive zymogen and activated extracellularly by removal of its propeptide. MMP13 was first identified in tumor cells but has since been found in synoviocytes and normal fibroblasts stimulated by IL6 or a combination of TNF alpha and IL1. Under normal conditions, MMP13 is expressed during embryogenesis (fetal bone development) and is present only at very low levels in adult tissue. However, this enzyme is reported to be involved in the development and metastasis of breast and lung carcinomas, chondrosarcomas and osteosarcomas, head and neck carcinomas and some forms of skincancer. Additionally, this enzyme plays an important role in degenerative bone diseases including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
