Bone morphogenetic protein-1 (BMP-1) and the tolloid-like metalloproteinases control several aspects of embryonic development and tissue repair. Unlike other proteinases whose activities are regulated mainly by endogenous inhibitors, regulation of BMP-1/tolloid-like proteinases relies mostly on proteins that stimulate activity. Among these, procollagen(More)
BMP-1/tolloid-like proteinases (BTPs) are major enzymes involved in extracellular matrix assembly and activation of bioactive molecules, both growth factors and anti-angiogenic molecules. Although the control of BTP activity by several enhancing molecules is well established, the possibility that regulation also occurs through endogenous inhibitors is still(More)
The netrin-like (NTR) domain is a feature of several extracellular proteins, most notably the N-terminal domain of tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs), where it functions as a strong inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases and some other members of the metzincin superfamily. The presence of a C-terminal NTR domain in procollagen C-proteinase(More)
