MMP-12 expression in the human aorta wall. Lysates from tissues samples collected from AD and non-AD patients were separated on 12% SDS-PAGE gels and were analyzed by immunoblotting using an antihuman MMP-12 monoclonal antibody. Recombinant MMP-12 expressed in E. coli was used as positive control. Lane 1 : molecular weight markers; Lane 2–7: Western blot products from the aorta walls of AD patients; Lanes 8–9 : Western blot products from the coronary disease patient’s aorta walls; lane 10: Recombinant human MMP-12.
