rh MMP2 is fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus, and has a calculated MW of 71.8 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Ala 30. The reducing (R) protein migrates as 66-71 kDa in SDS-PAGE .
Pre-activation is required for enzymatic assays. Please dilute Human MMP-2 to 50-100 µg/mL in TCNB buffer (50 mM Tris, 10 mM CaCl2, 150 mM NaCl, 0.05% Brij-35 (w/v), pH 7.5), and then add p-aminophenylmercuric acetate (APMA, Sigma, Catalog # A-9563) to a final concentration of 1 mM. Please keep the enzyme with APMA for 2-6 hour at 37°C. Please note that the optimal treatment time may need to be determined empirically. *100mM APMA stock solution should be prepared in DMSO. Please avoid adding high concentration APMA solution (>20mM) directly into the reaction as it tends to precipitate. A pre-dilution step is highly recommended.
>92% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH8.0. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.
