MMP27

A gene on chromosome 11q24 that encodes membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 27, which degrades extracellular matrix proteins, including fibronectin, laminin, gelatins and/or collagens.

To date, there is no published studies on MMP-19, MMP-20, MMP-23, MMP-27 and MMP-28 activity in renal tumours.
They are classified according to their substrate specificity, sequence similarity, and domain organization into six groups: collagenases (MMP-1, MMP8, MMP-13, and MMP-18), gelatinases (MMP-2, MMP9), stromelysins (MMP-3, MMP-10), matrilysins (MMP7, MMP-26), membrane-type MMPs (MMP-14, MMP-15, MMP-16, MMP-24, MMP-17, and MMP-25), and other MMPs (MMP-12, MMP-19, MMP-20, MMP-21, MMP-23, MMP-27, and MMP-28) [11].
Other MMPs that are not classified in previous categories include MMP-12, MMP-19, MMP-20, MMP-21, MMP-23, MMP-27, and MMP-28 [6, 10, 11],
