Seven matrix metalloproteinases have been shown to be expressed under varying circumstances in articular cartilage--matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1), matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), matrix metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3), matrix metalloproteinase-8
(MMP-8), matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), matrix metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13), and matrix metalloproteinase-14 (MMP-14).
