      Background InformationMatrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of secreted and membrane-bound zinc endopeptidases. Collectively, these enzymes degrade components of extracellular matrix (ECM), including collagens, fibronectin, laminin and other glycoproteins. MMPs play an important role in wound healing, apoptosis, development, angiogenesis, cancer metastases, and tissue remodeling. Most MMPs are secreted as inactive proproteins which are cleaved and activated; however, MT1-MMP (MMP-14) is a member of the membrane-type subfamily. Each member of this subfamily has a transmembrane domain suggesting these proteins are expressed at the cell’s surface rather than secreted. MT1-MMP is capable of mediating pericellular proteolysis of ECM components and thought to be an important tool for cellular remodeling of the ECM. It is also involved in endothelial cell migration, and although not fully characterized, MT1-MMP activity appears to modulate endothelial invasion, and formation of capillary tubes during angiogenesis. It also appears to be a factor in monocyte recruitment during inflammation. MT1-MMP also activates MMP-2 protein, an activity involved in tumor invasion.

      Antibody TypePolyclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummarySummary: 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. However, the protein encoded by this gene is a member of the membrane-type MMP (MT-MMP) subfamily; each member of this subfamily contains a potential transmembrane domain suggesting that these proteins are expressed at the cell surface rather than secreted. This protein activates MMP2 protein, and this activity may be involved in tumor invasion. [provided by RefSeq].

      Purification MethodProtein A Purfied
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: Seems to specifically activate progelatinase A. May thus trigger invasion by tumor cells by activating progelatinase A on the tumor cell surface. May be involved in actin cytoskeleton reorganization by cleaving PTK7.

      CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Endopeptidase activity. Activates progelatinase A by cleavage of the propeptide at 37-Asn-|-Leu-38. Other bonds hydrolyzed include 35-Gly-|-Ile-36 in the propeptide of collagenase 3, and 341-Asn-|-Phe-342, 441-Asp-|-Leu-442 and 354-Gln-|-Thr-355 in the aggrecan interglobular domain.

      COFACTOR: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit (by similarity). Calcium (by similarity).

      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein (potential). Melanosome. Note: Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in stromal cells of colon, breast, and head and neck.

      DOMAIN: The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.

      POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATION: The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase (by similarity).

      SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES: Belongs to the peptidase M10A family. Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
