Human MMP-12 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human MMP-12 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human MMP-12 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin).
Matrix metalloproteinase-12(MMP12), also known as MME or ME, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MMP12 gene. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.2. It is thought that the protein encoded by this gene is cleaved at both ends to yield the active enzyme, but this processing has not been fully described. The enzyme degrades soluble and insoluble elastin. It may play a role in aneurysm formation and studies in mice suggest a role in the development of emphysema. This gene may involved in tissue injury and remodeling.
