ST14

(redirected from Matriptase)

ST14

A gene on chromosome 11q24-q25 that encodes matriptase, a type-II transmembrane serine protease which degrades extracellular matrix and is thought to play a role in breast cancer invasion and metastasis.

Molecular pathology
Defects in ST14 cause ichthyosis with hypotrichosis, autosomal recessive.

Additional evidence for the current consensus of protease-protease inhibitor deregulation in macrophages from patients with COPD was provided by the fact that human patients with the most common a1-antitrypsin mutation have greater proteolytic activity partially due to higher expression levels of the membrane-bound serine protease matriptase [196].
