CD44 directs membrane-type 1 matrix metalloproteinase to lamellipodia by associating with its hemopexin-like domain.


Membrane-type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1- MMP) localizes at the front of migrating cells and degrades the extracellular matrix barrier during cancer invasion. However, it is poorly understood how the polarized distribution of MT1-MMP at the migration front is regulated. Here, we demonstrate that MT1-MMP forms a complex with CD44H via the hemopexin-like… (More)
