Background The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of at least eighteen secreted andmembrane-bound zinc endopeptidases. Collectively, these enzymes can degrade all thecomponents of the extracellular matrix, including fibrillar and non-fibrillar collagens,fibronectin, laminin and basement membrane glycoproteins. In general, a signal peptide, apropeptide, and a catalytic domain containing the highly conserved zinc-binding sitecharacterizes the structure of the MMPs. In addition, fibronectin-like repeats, a hingeregion, and a C terminal hemopexin-like domain allow categorization of MMPs into thecollagenase, gelatinase, stomelysin and membrane type MMP subfamilies. All MMPs aresynthesized as proenzymes, and most of them are secreted from the cells as proenzymes. Thus, the activation of these proenzymes is a critical step that leads to extracellular matrixbreakdown. MMPs are considered to play an important role in wound healing, apoptosis,bone elongation, embryo development, uterine involution, angiogenesis and tissueremodeling, and in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, malignant gliomas,lupus, arthritis, periodontis, glumerulonephritis, atherosclerosis, tissue ulceration, and incancer cell invasion and metastasis. MMP2, also known as Gelatinase A, is a type IV collagenase that specifically cleaves typeIV collagen, the major structural component of basement membranes. The metastaticpotential of tumor cells has been found to correlate with the activity of this enzyme.
