Description
MW = 17.6 kDa. Recombinant matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP-12, metalloelastase, macrophage elastase) cloned from human cDNA, expressed in E. coli. The enzyme consists of the wild type catalytic domain of human MMP-12 (residues 106-263 swissprot accession P39900).

Purity
> 95% by SDS-PAGE. The protein was observed as a single band migrating at a molecular weight of between 19.5 and 14.4 kDa.

Specific activity
> 40U/μg. Activity described as U=100 pmol/min at 25°C using a colorimetric assay with thiopeptide Ac-Pro-Leu-Gly-[2-mercapto-4-methyl-pentanoyl]-Leu-Gly-OC2H5 (Biomol) as substrate.

Usage
Enzyme kinetic studies, cleavage of target substrates and screening of inhibitors.
