  • Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) facilitate cellular invasion by degrading the extracellular matrix, and their regulation is partially dependent on transcription. Binding sites for members of the Ets family of transcription factors are present within MMP promoters and are potent positive regulators. We report a single nucleotide polymorphism at -1607 bp in the MMP-1 promoter, where an additional guanine (G) creates an Ets binding site, 5'-GGA-3'. This polymorphism displays significantly higher… CONTINUE READING
