The plates were flooded with acidic mercuric chloride solution (15%), waited for 5-10 minutes, the excess solution was decanted off and appearance of a clear zone around the colonies was indicative of hydrolysis of gelatin by the enzyme gelatinase.
These remain our renal biomarkers of choice until the use of newer renal biomarkers, such as neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin and cystatin C, becomes commonplace.
These authors have chosen to search for MMP-2 because this gelatinase is frequently involved in the invasive phenotype of some lesions.
The Notre Dame group has been investigating variants of a compound called "SB-3CT," which shows promise as a selective and potent gelatinase inhibitor.
Neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a new early marker for acute kidney injury.
Marked changes in gelatinase activity are observed early in the alveolar compartment, with a prevailing extracellular activity of MMP-2 and a predominant intracellular distribution of MMP-9, while enzyme activity changes in lung parenchyma were less evident.
Gelatinase activity aligned with levels of volatile hydrocarbons and monoxide gases.
