Tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase 3 (TIMP-3) is an inhibitor of matrix degradation; however, little else is known about the role(s) of this protein in articular cartilage. In this study we compared levels of TIMP-3 in human knee and ankle cartilages and in normal and degraded cartilages. In addition, our studies focused on the compartmentalization of TIMP-3 in human adult articular cartilage matrix, identification of its potential binding partners, and determining the effects of… CONTINUE READING
