The Quantikine Human MMP-9 Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure MMP-9 (92 kDa pro- and 82 kDa active forms but not the 65 kDa form) in cell culture supernates, saliva, serum, plasma, and urine. It is calibrated with CHO cell-expressed recombinant human pro-MMP-9 and the antibodies were raised against the recombinant factor. Natural human MMP-9 showed dose-response ...curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards, indicating that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values of natural human MMP-9.

The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) consist of 24 known human zinc proteases with essential roles in breaking down components of the extracellular matrix (ECM). Additional MMP substrates include cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and binding proteins, cell/cell adhesion molecules, and other proteinases. With a few exceptions, MMPs share common structural motifs including a pro-peptide domain, a catalytic domain, a hinge region, and a hemopexin-like domain. Synthesized as pro-enzymes, most MMPs are secreted before conversion to their active form. MMP activities are modulated on several levels including transcription, pro-enzyme activation, or by their endogenous inhibitors, tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs). A subset of MMPs are associated with membranes and designated as membrane-type metalloproteinases (MT-MMP).

I’m looking for a pair of antibodies to MMP-9 that can be used in a sandwich assay. Do you carry any?
We have 10 primary antibodies for MMP-9 that have been tested in ELISA.https://www.novusbio.com/search?keywords=MMP-9&category=Primary%20Antibodies&applications=ELISA&common_name=MMP-9It looks like 2 have been tested for capture (please note the tested species for each of these).https://www.novusbio.com/search?keywords=MMP-9&category=Primary%20Antibodies&common_name=MMP-9&applications=ELISA%20Capture%20(Matched%20Antibody%20Pair)1 has been tested for detection.https://www.novusbio.com/search?keywords=MMP-9&category=Primary%20Antibodies&common_name=MMP-9&applications=ELISA%20Detection%20(Matched%20Antibody%20Pair)
wondering what the difference is between your quantikine and duo set elisas?
Usually the duosets do not have the entire kit such as plates and buffers, whereas the other kits are complete.
