Matrix metalloproteinase
Matrix metalloproteinases
Collectively they are capable of degrading all kinds of molecules. They are known to be involved in in/activation. MMPs are also thought to play a major role on cell behaviors such as . They are distinguished from other endopeptidases by their s were described by Jermome Gross and Charles Lapiere (1962) who observed triple helix degradation) during tadpole tail metamorphosis (PMID he enzyme was named interstitial collagenase (MMP purified from human skin (1968) (PMID 4967132), and was recognized to be ption of the "cysteine switch" was described in 1990 Structure

structures of several MMP catalytic domains have shown that this domain is an oblate sphere measuring 35 x 30 x 30 ed sequence HExxHxxGxxH. Hence, this sequence is a zinc zinc- binding motif in the catalytic domain (PMID 12486137).
The hinge region
The catalytic domain is connected to the C long, and has no determinable structure.

The MMPs can be subdivided in different ways. Use of MMP - 19; MMPs 11, 14, 15, 16 and 17; MMP tic domains in isolation suggests that the catalytic domains evolved further once the major groups had differentiated, as is also indicated by the . The most commonly used groupings (by researchers in MMP biology) are based partly on historical assessment of the substrate specificity of the MMP and partly on the of the MMP. These groups are the collagenases, the gelatinases, the stromelysins, - MMPs). It is becoming increasingly clear that these divisions are somewhat artificial as there are a number of MMPs that do not fit into any Archetypal MMPs
The collagenases
These MMPs are capable of degrading triple capable of degrading them. Traditionally, the collagenases are: MMP - 18 (Collagenase 4, xcol4, xenopus collagenase. - MMP) has also been shown to cleave fibrillar The stromelysins
These enzymes display a broad ability to cleave . The three canonical members of this group are: therefore usually associated to convertase Other MMPs
- 1, occasionally referred to as stromelysin The matrilysins
The gelatinases

The MMPs are inhibited by specific endogenous tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMPs), all MMPs are inhibited by TIMPs once they are activated but the gelatinases (MMP 9) can form complexes with TIMPs when the enzymes are in the latent form. The complex of site tightly. Common chelating groups include . Hydroxymates are particularly potent inhibitors of MMPs and other zinc dependent enzymes, due to their bidentate these inhibitors are usually designed to interact with various binding pockets on the MMP of interest, making the inhibitor more or less specific for given MMPs.
