Background Information

MMP28(Epilysin)can degrade casein and play a role in tissues homeostasis and repair .The only specific human cell type recognized to express epilysin is the basal keratinocyte in the skin, where epilysin expression is upregulated during wound repair(PMID:16940349).Western blot showed this antibody recognize bands at 62 and 58 kDa as well as breakdown products at 50, 48, and 46 kDa(PMID:15953044).This antibody is specific to MMP28.
