PURPOSE Polymorphisms, such as a guanine inserted at position -1607 in the promoter region of human matrix metalloprotenase 1 (MMP-1) or a C-1562T substitution in the MMP-9 gene, have been shown to increase the transcriptional activity of these MMPs. The objective of this study was to investigate the possible relationship between these polymorphisms and… CONTINUE READING
