MMP-9 ELISA Kit (Matrix Metalloproteinase-9)


Human MMP-9 ELISA kit can be used for measuring in vitro quantitative concentrations of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP9, MMP-9, gelatinase B, 92 kD type IV collagenase or type V collagenase) in human cell lysates, serum, plasma, cell culture supernatant and many other biological fluids. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.188 ng/ml.


Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9 or MMP9) which can also be referred to as gelatinase B, type V collagenase or 92 kD type IV collagenase, are members of the group of secreted zinc metalloproteases. It is a matrixin which is involved in degrading extracellular matrix, allow angiogenesis and tumor invasion. It is pro-enzyme consists of five domains: amino-terminal pro-peptide, carboxyl-terminal hemopexin-like domain (conserved) and the zinc-binding catalytic domain.

MMP-9 is predominantly known to be expressed in macrophages, neutrophils and mast cells and together with elastase is a regulatory factor in the migration of neutrophil across the basement membrane. Gelatinase B, has been identified to have proteolytic activity against connective tissue proteins and it has be indicated to be vital in the process of connective tissue remodelling which is linked with plaque rupture and atherogenesis. Elevated levels are discovered in cases of focal brain ischemia and rheumatoid arthritis.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
