matrix metalloproteinase-11

(redirected from MMP-11)

matrix metalloproteinase-11

A matrix metalloproteinase encoded on chromosome 22q11.2 which degrades extracellular matrix, collagens and other tissue substrates.

Cytokine inducers
EGF, FGF-b, IGF-II, IL-6, PDGF, TGF-alpha.
Alpha1-antitrypsin, alpha2-macroglobulin, casein, IGF-binding protein-1.

Normal expression
Increased expression and activation during wound healing; migration and extracellular matrix remodeling is accompanied by acquisition of a mesenchymal phenotype in respiratory epithelial cells.

Abnormal expression
MMP-11 appears in the desmoplastic stroma of invasive, but not in situ, breast carcinoma; its transcription may be induced by diffusible cytokines (e.g., PDGF, fibroblast growth factor, TGF-alpha), providing a mechanism by which malignant cells destroy basement membranes and invade tissues.

Expression of MMP-10 (stromelysin 2) does not show any relationship with the advancement of bladder carcinoma [28], while expression of MMP-11 was significantly higher and positively correlated with the degree of tumor aggressiveness and malignancy [29].
