Background of MMP-9

The 92-kD type IV collagenase is also known as 92-kD gelatinase, type V collagenase, gelatinase B, or matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP9). The 72- and 92-kDa type IV collagenases are members of a group of secreted zinc metalloproteases. The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are able to degrade the extracellular matrix and allow angiogenesis and tumor invasion. Gelatinase B, a matrix metalloproteinase that has proteolytic activity against connective tissue proteins, has been suggested to be important in the connective tissue remodeling processes associated with atherogenesis and plaque rupture. MMP-9 is predominantly expressed in neutrophils, macrophages, and mast cells, rather than in oncogene-positive neoplastic cells. The polymorphism of MMP-9 acts as a genetic factor for the development of smoking-induced pulmonary emphysema. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human MMP-9 with the molecular mass of 95KDa. The detected MMP-9 includes zymogen and active enzyme.

8 Customer Q&As for Human MMP-9 ELISA Kit PicoKine®

Question

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

H. Mitchell

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-10-03

Answer

A: although the vials are bottled using aseptic techniques, heat-treated vials, and sterile stock solutions, they are not considered or guaranteed to be sterile. If sterile material is required for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.

Question

Q: Can MMP-9 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-08-08

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not suitable for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is required. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been assessd by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please see the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

Q: is it okay to use EDTA plasma as samples in Human MMP-9 Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK0465)?

T. Carter

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-07-30

Answer

A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can irreversibly bind metal ions from the functional domain of MMP-9 causing degradation of its protein structure. MMP-9 may be denatured as a result and may compromise the assay's measurements. The chilating sites could also be too close to the epitopes a must for detection and block the antigen antibody reaction. We have tested the MMP-9 ELISA, treating samples with various anticoagulants and decided that heparin can be used for treatment of blood/plasma samples. Do not use other anticoagulents when collecting samples.

Question

Q: how much samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-09

Answer

A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may might differ by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-07-02

Answer

Our lab technicians haven't worked on human tear sample using the Human MMP-9 ELISA Kit PicoKine™ (EK0465). Please run a pilot test.

Question

Q: if the enzyme conjugated MMP-9 antibodies are mixed with the substrate, will that change the substrate into the enzymatic reaction product? Or the enzyme function is only activated when the antibody is attached with the MMP-9 antigen?

T. Hill

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-01-06

Answer

A: The enzyme is always active. Avoid contaminating the substrate with enzyme prior to the incubation otherwise it compromises the assay with false positive signal.
