Matrix metallopeptidase 7

MMP-7, Matrix Metalloproteinase 7, Matrilysin
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 this 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. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.3. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Changes in transcriptome of macrophages in atherosclerosis.
Orekhov et al., Moscow, Russia. In J Cell Mol Med, 13 Jun 2015
Compared to M0 macrophages, M4 cells have a unique transcriptome, with expression of surface markers such as S100A8, mannose receptor CD206 and matrix metalloproteinase 7. M4 macrophages did not express CD163, a scavenger receptor for haemoglobin/haptoglobin complex.
Prognostic significance of MMP-7 expression in colorectal cancer: a meta-analysis.
Lv et al., Changchun, China. In Cancer Epidemiol, 30 Apr 2015
OBJECTIVE: Matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) is a member of the family of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs); it is associated with invasive tumor growth and distant metastasis in colorectal cancer (CRC).
Matrix Remodeling by MMPs during Wound Repair.
Parks et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Matrix Biol, 11 Apr 2015
For wound closure, we discuss how two MMPs - MMP1 in human epidermis and MMP7 in mucosal epithelia - facilitate re-epithelialization by cleaving different ECM or ECM-associated proteins to affect similar integrin:matrix adhesion.

Prognostic value of matrix metalloproteinases in oral squamous cell carcinoma.
Djonov et al., Bern, Switzerland. In Biotechnol Biotechnol Equip, Dec 2014
UNASSIGNED: The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a correlation between the expressions of four matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs): MMP-2, MMP-7, MMP-9 and MMP-13, and the TNM (tumour-node-metastasis) stages of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC); and to explore the implication of these MMPs in OSCC dissemination.
