MaxDiscovery™ Human MMP-3 ELISA Test Kit

Product Description
MaxDiscovery™ Human MMP-3 ELISA Test Kit is designed for quantitative determination of the concentration of human MMP-3 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant. Human matrix metalloproteinase 3 (MMP-3) is also known as stromelysin-1 previously, a protein of 477 amino acid residuals including a short signal peptide of 17 amino acids. MMP-3 may be expressed in fibroblasts, chondrocytes, endothelial cells, macrophages, vascular smooth muscle cells, osteoblasts, and keratinocytes in response to appropriate stimuli. Various agents regulate its biosynthesis. Inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1 and TNF-a, epidermal growth factor, platelet-derived growth factor, phorbol and oncogenic cellular transformation are the inductive agents. MMP-3 belongs to a member of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family which are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. MMP-3 is secreted as an inactive proprotein which is activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. MMP-3 appears to play a role in the degradation of fibronectin, laminin, collagens III, IV, IX, and X, and cartilage proteoglycans. MMP-3 is therefore thought to be involved in wound repair, progression of atherosclerosis, and tumor initiation. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22. The method is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). It utilizes an antibody (capture antibody) specific for Human MMP-3 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any human MMP-3 present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated polyclonal anti-human MMP-3 antibody (detection antibody) is added. After a second wash, avidin-horseradish peroxidase (avidin-HRP) is added. The wells are again washed and a substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of human MMP-3 present in the initial sample. The stop buffer is then added to terminate the reaction. This results in a color change from blue to yellow. The wells are then read at 450 nm.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
