General Information

Biological Significance The family of MMPs are capable of breaking down any extracellular matrix component. In normal physiology, MMPs produced by connective tissue are thought to contribute to tissue remodeling in development, in the menstrual cycle and in repair processes following tissue damage. In pathological situations mainly the involvement of breakdown of the connective tissues like in rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and periodontal and cardiovascular diseases are described. Leukocytes, mainly macrophages, are the major sources of MMP production which allow leukocytes to extravasate and penetrate tissues, which is a key event in inflammatory diseases. In parallel, metastatic cancer cells use MMPs tomigrate to foreign tissue. MMP13, also known as Collagenase 3, is a member of the matrix metalloproteinases family with broad substrate specificity and a potential role in tumor metastasis and invasion. The three-dimensionalstructure reveals a core domain for the protein consisting of three alpha-helices and five beta-sheet strands with an overall tertiary fold similar to the catalytic domain of the other matrix metalloproteinase family members. The purified monomeric enzyme has a molecular mass of 19,600 Da.
