Matrix metalloproteinases function in the remodeling of the extracellular matrix during growth and development as well as in injury and disease processes. We examined the role of matrix metalloproteinase-9 in a model of olfactory nerve injury in mice. We measured changes in matrix metalloproteinase-9 protein levels for up to 60 days following olfactory(More)
Matrix metalloproteineases are associated with extracellular remodeling that occurs in injury and repair processes in the central nervous system (CNS). We examined the role of MMP-2 in a model of olfactory nerve injury and found that MMP-2 levels increased several hours following injury, peaked at day 7 and then decreased rapidly. We previously reported a(More)
