MW = 18.6 kDa calculated. Recombinant Matrix Metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13, Collagenase-3, Col3) cloned from human cDNA, expressed in E. coli. The enzyme consists of the catalytic domain of human MMP-13 (residues 104-268, UniProtKB accession P45452). This product is derived from MMP-13 catalytic domain and contains also the mutation F175D to increase its stability.
