[Natural inhibitor of metalloproteinases: structural and functional study].


A potent collagenase inhibitor was purified from cells of calf aorta medial tissue maintained in culture. This molecule was characterized and identified as TIMP (Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinases). Formation of a TIMP--collagenase complex was demonstrated chromatographically using pure TIMP and pure pig synovial cell collagenase. The N-terminal… (More)
