Regulation of chondrosarcoma invasion by MMP26.
Kunming, China. In Tumour Biol, 2015
Here, we show that matrix metalloproteinase-26 (MMP26) level is significantly higher in the resected CS than in the adjacent healthy chondral tissue from the patients.
Matrix metalloproteinases in the restorative proctocolectomy pouch of pediatric ulcerative colitis.
Helsinki, Finland. In World J Gastroenterol, 2012
Most pouch samples showed expression of epithelial (e) and stromal (s) MMP-3 (e, n = 22; s, n = 20), MMP-7 (e, n = 28; s, n = 27), MMP-12 (e, n = 20; s, n =24), TIMP-2 (e, n = 23; s, n = 23) and MMP-3 (e, n = 23; s, n = 28) but MMP-8 (e, n = 0; s, n = 1), MMP-9 (e, n = 0; s, n = 9) and MMP-26 (e, n = 0; s, n = 3) and TIMP-1 (n = 0, both) were lacking.
