MMP1

MMP1

A gene on chromosome 11q22.3 that encodes matrix metalloproteinase 1, which cleaves collagens I, II and III in the helical domain, as well as collagens VII and X. MMP1 interacts and cleaves HIV’s secreted Tat protein, reducing neuronal Tat-mediated neurotoxicity.

Of these, MMP-1 (also known as collagenase) may be particularly important in RA, both because it is copiously produced in response to cytokine stimulation, and because it is the only MMP secreted by RA SF that has the capacity to digest type II collagen (the major collagen in cartilage) in the absence of prior collagen degradation.
Smokers like Rolling Stone Keith Richards have higher concentrations of the protein - matrix metalloproteinase, or MMP-1 - than non-smokers like Cliff Richard.
It achieved this by reducing the expression of MMP-1, MMP-2, and MMP-7, by blocking MAPK signaling by inhibiting the phosphorylation of ERIC and p38 MAPK, by inhibition of AP-1 activation, and by inducing focal adhesion formation and modulating vinculin localization and expression.
