Spontaneous epithelial (S) to neuroblast (N) conversion enhanced the capacity of SK-N-SH neuroblastoma (NB) cells to invade reconstituted basement membrane in vitro. This involved a switch to matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity, in particular MMP-9, and was associated with the induction of MMP-9 expression. N-type-specific MMP-9 expression was(More)
The alternative TrkAIII splice variant is expressed by murine and human thymus. Alternative TrkAIII splicing predominates in postembryonic day E13 (E17 and E18), postnatal murine (3 week and 3 month) and human thymuses, with TrkAIII mRNA expressed by selected thymocyte subsets and thymic epithelial cells (TECs) and a 100 kDa immunoprecipitable TrkAIII-like(More)
The degradation of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-free matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 to proteolytically inactive fragments by plasmin was inhibited in equimolar mixtures of purified TIMP-2 and TIMP-free MMP-2 and was not observed in purified MMP-2-TIMP-2 complexes. Divalent cation chelators EDTA and sodium Alendronate did not inhibit(More)
