Stromelysin-3 (ST3) belongs to the matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs) family, a protease family involved in tissue remodeling. Although this family of enzymes is regulated by nuclear receptors, few hormone-responsive elements have been demonstrated in MMP promoters. In order to identify regulatory elements and/or factors that control the expression of the(More)
Human stromelysin-3 and interstitial collagenase are matrix metalloproteinases whose expression by stromal cells in several types of carcinomas has been associated with cancer progression. We compared here the regulation of the expression of both proteinases by retinoids in human fibroblasts. Physiological concentrations of retinoic acid were found to(More)
Stromelysin-3 (ST3) is a matrix metalloproteinase whose synthesis is markedly increased in stromal fibroblasts of most invasive human carcinomas. In the present study, we have investigated the molecular mechanisms by which high levels of ST3 expression can be induced. In contrast to the early and transient induction of interstitial collagenase by(More)
