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 680 is excited by 680 + 10 nm excitation light, and emits at 700 + 10 nm. MMPSense 680 has an optimal imaging window of 24-36 hours after injection, allowing workflow flexibility in acquiring data in large animal cohorts. Including MMPSense 680 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.

Epifluorescence (2D) imaging of superficially implanted mouse tumor xenograft models offers a fast and simple method for assessing tumor progression or response to therapy. This approach for tumor assessment requires the use of near infrared (NIR) imaging agents specific for different aspects of tumor biology, and this Application Note highlights the ease and utility of multiplex NIR fluorescence imaging to characterize the complex biology within tumors growing in a living mouse.
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.
