A matrix metalloproteinase gene expressed in human T lymphocytes is identical with collagenase 3 from breast carcinomas.


The response of human T lymphocytes to various stimuli includes the expression of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) genes stromelysin 2, gelatinase A and gelatinase B. The proteins encoded by these genes could confer the capacity to degrade macromolecular components of the extracellular matrix (ECM), and to shed transmembrane proteins such as tumor… (More)
