Background Information

MMP-13(Matrix metalloproteinase-13), cleaves type I collagen and was previously thought to be the rodent analogue of human interstitial MMP-1. MMP-13 is found in hypertrophic and calcifying cartilage of mammalian growth plate. The bands seen with rat MMP-13 are consistent with a 59-kDa latent form and a 43-kDa active form reported for this enzyme, along with a smaller band at approximately 30 kDa(PMID:10771523). It also can be detected 3 bands that the glycosylated proMMP-13 (70 kDa), unglycosylated proform (55 kDa), and active MMP-13 enzyme (40kDa) by western blot(PMID:18332263).
