Product Description

Description

The matrix metalloproteinase 16 (MMP16) protein consists of 604 amino acids and has a characteristic MMP domain structure, which gene is mapped on human chromosome 8q211. Additionally, MMP16 has a C-terminal extension containing a potential transmembrane domain, similar to MMP14 , MMP15 , and MMP172. Furthermore, it is membrane-bound and is a member of the membrane-type MMPs that are a subclass in the MMP family since the other members lack a C-terminal transmembrane domain and are secreted as soluble forms2. MMP16 is expressed as a 12-kb transcript in brain, placenta, heart, and some carcinoma cell lines, but is not detectably expressed in lung, kidney, liver, spleen, and muscle.
