Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are calcium-dependent zinc containing endopeptidases responsible for the degradation of most of extracellular matrix proteins during organogenesis, growth and normal tissue turnover. MMPs play a role in almost every biological cell process from embryo implantation to cell death and have been implicated in a wide range of diseases including inflammation, arthritis, pulmonary disease, cancer and more.
PerkinElmer’s MMPSense NIR activatable fluorescence agents are designed to evaluate many disease related processes including cancer progression, rheumatoid arthritis, pulmonary disease and more as well as evaluating therapeutic efficacy of potential drug candidates.

MMPSense 645 FAST is excited by 649 nm excitation light, and emits at 666 nm. MMPSense 645 FAST is a member of a family of activatable fluorescent imaging agents comprising a novel architecture termed F.A.S.T. (Fluorescent Activatable Sensor Technology), that allows for an earlier optimal imaging window of 6-24 hours after injection, facilitating detection of early MMP activity changes, for example in acute models of inflammation or stroke. Including MMPSense 645 FAST in careful experimental design allows for multiplexing with other channels and/or imaging times, and so can be paired with other probes to achieve maximum efficiency and flexibility in imaging.

MMPSense 645 FAST a member of a family of activatable fluorescent imaging agents comprising a novel architecture termed F.A.S.T. (Fluorescent Activatable Sensor Technology), that confers an improved pharmacokinetic profile with earlier imaging time points. This architecture offers higher target specific signal with reduced background while also reducing the optimal imaging time after injection.

The primary goal of preclinical imaging is to improve the odds of clinical success and reduce drug discovery and development time and costs. Advances in non-invasive in vivo imaging techniques have raised the use of animal models in drug discovery and development to a new level by enabling quick and efficient drug screening and evaluation. Read this White Paper to learn how preclinical in vivo imaging helps to ensure that smart choices are made by providing Go/No-Go decisions and de-risking drug candidates early on, significantly reducing time to the clinic and lowering costs all while maximizing biological understanding.
