Cell surface activation of progelatinase A occurs in a quaternary complex with the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-2 (TIMP-2) and two membrane-type matrix metalloproteinases. We have mutated the unique cationic clusters found in hemopexin modules III and IV of the carboxyl domain (C domain) of human gelatinase A to determine their role in binding(More)
BACKGROUND As aortic valve (AV) repairs become more sophisticated, surgeons need increasingly detailed information about the structure and function of this valve. Unlike two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2D-TEE), using three-dimensional (3D)-TEE makes it possible to image the entire AV. We hypothesized that measuring coaptation surface area(More)
