The QuickZyme Human MMP-2 Activity Assay enables you to specifically measure in biological samples both active MMP-2, as well as (pro)MMP-2, which is activated on the plate by APMA. It can be used for the measurement of MMP-2 activity in various biological samples, such as conditioned culture media, tissue homogenates, serum, plasma and urine.
This 96-well plate format assay is based on the QuickZyme technology, using a modified pro-enzyme as a substrate, which upon activation is able to release color from a chromogenic peptide substrate. This multiplication step provides a unique assay sensitivity.
Measures endogenous active MMP-2 (naturally occurring) or total active MMP-2 (following activation with APMA).
Samples: cell culture conditioned medium, serum, plasma, urine and tissue homogenates.
Range: 0.02 – 16 ng/ml.
Sensitivity: 0.04 ng/ml for 2 h incubation with detection reagent; 0.02 ng/ml for 6 h incubation with detection reagent; 4 pg/ml for overnight incubation
Ease-of-use: Equivalent to ELISA.
