    유전자 요약: Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The enzyme encoded by MMP7 gene degrades proteoglycans, fibronectin, elastin and casein and differs from most MMP family members in that it lacks a conserved C-terminal protein domain. The enzyme is involved in wound healing, and studies in mice suggest that it regulates the activity of defensins in intestinal mucosa. MMP7 gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.3. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

    촉매 활성: Cleavage of 14-Ala-|-Leu-15 and 16-Tyr-|-Leu-17 in B chain of insulin. No action on collagen types I, II, IV, V. Cleaves gelatin chain alpha-2(I) > alpha-1(I).
    보조 인자: Name=Ca(2+); Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:29108; ; Note=Binds 2 calcium ions per subunit.;; Name=Zn(2+); Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:29105; ; Note=Binds 2 Zn(2+) ions per subunit.;
    도메인: The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
    세포하 위치: Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix {ECO:0000305}.
    염기서열 유사성: Belongs to the peptidase M10A family. {ECO:0000305}.

    Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc-dependent endopeptidases that degrade components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and play essential roles in various physiological and pathological processes such as morphogenesis, differentiation, angiogenesis, tissue remodeling, and tumor invasion. MMPs are synthesized as pro-enzymes and converted to active form by extracellular proteinases. MMP7, also referred to as matrilysin, is the smallest member of the MMP family and differs from other MMP members in that it lacks the C-terminal hemopexin-like domain. MMP7 is produced primarily by mucosal epithelia, and is capable of degrading various ECM proteins including proteoglycans, fibronectin, elastin and casein. This enzyme serves essential functions in both innate defense and wound healing, and appears to be one of the most important MMPs in human colon cancers. It has been reported that MMP7 contributes to tumor malignancy probably by cleaving cell surface proteins such as Fas ligand, degradation of IgG or inducing E-cadherin-mediated cell aggregation. In addition, matrilysin is also identified as a mediator of pulmonary fibrosis and a potential therapeutic target.
