On the cell surface, the 59-kDa membrane type 1-matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) activates the 72-kDa progelatinase A (MMP-2) after binding the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP)-2. A(More)
The membrane-type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) has been shown to be a key enzyme in tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. MT1-MMP hydrolyzes a variety of extracellular matrix components and is a(More)
The role of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) in responses of human fibroblasts and vascular endothelial cells to IL-1 was investigated by use of a pyridinyl imidazole compound (SB 203580),(More)
The binding properties of the newly described tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-4 (TIMP-4) to progelatinase A and to the COOH-terminal hemopexin-like domain (C domain) of the enzyme were(More)
