San Jose, CA, December 20, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- At the 48th meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology, AnaSpec, in collaboration with the University of New Brunswick and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), presented a technical poster entitled, “The Expression and Activity of MMPs during Zebrafish (Danio rerio) Development.”
Recent advances have made the zebrafish an attractive system for studying MMP activity. However, there are few commercially available antibodies against MMPs that are suitable for studies using zebrafish. The objectives of the study presented in the poster were to develop effective immunological reagents for the study of MMPs in zebrafish and to test commercially available narrow-spectrum fluorogenic MMPs substrates in in vivo zymography.
