(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

MMP-19 Antibodies

To date, human MMP proteins can be divided into 4 broad classes: collagenases, gelatinases, stromelysins, and membrane-type MMP's. As a family, the MMP's function at a neutral pH and are involved in a wide range of biological processes ranging from re-organization of tissue architecture to mediating tumor cell metastasis. MMP-19 (RASI-1) was originally PCR cloned from a liver cDNA library using EST primers (1). The full length protein consists of 508 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of approximately 57 kDa for the zymogen form and maps to chromosome 12q14. As with other MMP family members the MMP-19 protein has a signal sequence, a prodomain with the characteristic conserved cysteine residue for maintaining latency, a zinc ion binding domain and a COOH terminus hemopexin domain .Unlike other MMP proteins however there is no fibronectin or transmembrane domain but instead an acidic residue rich domain near the "hinge" region. Based on these characteristics MMP-19 appears to define yet another class of MMP proteins. Expression of MMP-19 is elevated in rheumatoid arthritis where it co-localizes to the tunica media of blood vessel walls along with TIMP-1 .MMP-19 is the target of autoantibodies in rheumatoid arthritis and SLE
