The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/3000 - 1/8000.
Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
功能Can degrade fibronectin, laminin, gelatins of type I, III, IV, and V; collagens III, IV, X, and IX, and cartilage proteoglycans. Activates procollagenase.
序列相似性Belongs to the peptidase M10A family. Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
结构域The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
