Matrix metalloproteinases and their inhibitors and inducer in gestational trophoblastic diseases and normal placenta.
Szeged, Hungary. In Gynecol Oncol, 2011
METHODS: Paraffin sections of 10 normal first-trimester placentas (NP), 10 partial moles (PM), 10 complete moles (CM), 5 choriocarcinomas (CCA) and 5 placental site trophoblastic tumors (PSTT) were studied immunohistochemically for expression of MMP-7, MMP-14, MMP-21, MMP-28, TIMP-3, TIMP-4 and CD147.
Comparative expression pattern of Matrix-Metalloproteinases in human glioblastoma cell-lines and primary cultures.
Würzburg, Germany. In Bmc Res Notes, 2009
FINDINGS: We analysed MMP-1, -8, -9, -10, -11, -13, -17, -19, -20, -21, -23, -24, -26, -27, and MMP-28 expression in seven GBM cell-lines (SNB-19, GaMG, U251, U87, U373, U343, U138) and in four primary cell cultures by semiquantitative RT-PCR, followed changes in the MMP expression pattern with increasing passages of cell culture and examined the influence of TNF-α and TGF-β1 stimulation on the expression of selected MMPs in U251 and U373 cells.MMP-13, -17, -19 and -24 were expressed by all analyzed cell-lines, whereas MMP-20 and MMP-21 were not expressed by any of them.
