Background of MMP-12

Matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP12), also known as MME or ME, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MMP12 gene. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.2. It is thought that the protein encoded by this gene is cleaved at both ends to yield the active enzyme, but this processing has not been fully described. The enzyme degrades soluble and insoluble elastin. It may play a role in aneurysm formation and studies in mice suggest a role in the development of emphysema. This gene may involved in tissue injury and remodeling.

Antibody Validation

5 Customer Q&As for Anti-Macrophage metalloelastase MMP12 Antibody


We are currently using anti-MMP12 antibody RP1089 for mouse tissue, and we are satisfied with the ELISA results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says mouse. Is it likely that the antibody can work on bovine tissues as well?

The anti-MMP12 antibody (RP1089) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with bovine tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in bovine you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.

We bought anti-MMP12 antibody for ELISA on amniotic fluid in a previous experiment. I am using mouse, and We are going to use the antibody for WB next. you antibody examining amniotic fluid as well as alveolar macrophage in our next experiment. Could you please give me some suggestion on which antibody would work the best for WB?

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-11-29


I looked at the website and datasheets of our anti-MMP12 antibody and it seems that RP1089 has been validated on mouse in both ELISA and WB. Thus RP1089 should work for your application. Our Boster satisfaction guarantee will cover this product for WB in mouse even if the specific tissue type has not been validated. We do have a comprehensive range of products for WB detection and you can check out our website to find out more information about them.

From literature alveolar macrophage does express MMP12. From, MMP12 is expressed in amniotic fluid, alveolar macrophage, esophagus, among other tissues. Regarding which tissues have MMP12 expression, here are a few articles citing expression in various tissues:
Alveolar macrophage, Pubmed ID: 8226919
Esophagus, Pubmed ID: 14702039
