|Protein Name||Matrix metalloproteinase-16(MMP-16)|
|Molecular Weight||69521 MW|
|Protein Function||Endopeptidase that degrades various components of the extracellular matrix, such as collagen type III and fibronectin. Activates progelatinase A. Involved in the matrix remodeling of blood vessels. Isoform short cleaves fibronectin and also collagen type III, but at lower rate. It has no effect on type I, II, IV and V collagen. However, upon interaction with CSPG4, it may be involved in degradation and invasion of type I collagen by melanoma cells. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, ovary and small intestine. Isoform Short is found in the ovary.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Isoform Long: Cell membrane ; Single-pass type I membrane protein ; Extracellular side . Localized at the cell surface of melanoma cells.|
|Alternative Names||Matrix metalloproteinase-16;MMP-16;3.4.24.-;MMP-X2;Membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 3;MT-MMP 3;MTMMP3;Membrane-type-3 matrix metalloproteinase;MT3-MMP;MT3MMP;MMP16;MMPX2;|

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
