OBJECTIVE To examine the mechanism of interleukin-1 (IL-1)-induced collagenase 3 (matrix metalloproteinase 13 [MMP-13]) gene expression in cultured chondrocytes for the purpose of better(More)
Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta) is a potent cytokine that stimulates interstitial collagenase-1 (matrix metalloproteinase-1; MMP-1). In this study, we compared the mechanism(s) by which IL-1 beta(More)
Cartilage, bone and the interstitial stroma, composed largely of the interstitial collagens, types I, II and III, are remodelled by three members of the metalloproteinase (MMP) family, collagenase-1(More)
Collagenase-1 (matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1)) degrades the extracellular matrix and enhances the invasive phenotype of tumor cells. v-src activated MMP-1 transcription through a series of(More)
