General Information

Biological Significance Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) form a family of enzymes with major actions in the remodelling of extracellular matrix (ECM) components. MMP9, also called Gelatinase B, is the most complex family member in terms of domain structure and regulation of its activity. MMP9 activity is under strict control at various levels: transcription of the gene by cytokines and cellular interactions; activation of the proenzyme by a cascade of enzymes comprising serine proteases and other MMPs; and regulation by specific tissue inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs) or unspecific inhibitors. Further glycosylation has a limited effect on the net activity of Gelatinase B and chemotactic factors are another level of control of activity. The main function of MMPs is degradation of the extracellular physiologic function including wound healing, bone resorption and mammary involution. MMPs also contribute to pathological conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, coronary artery disease and cancer. They are thought to promote the growth of these tumor cells once they have metastasized. MMP9 plays an important role in tumor invasion, angiogenesis and metastasis.
