Cytokines and signaling pathways regulating matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) expression in corneal epithelial cells.

Abstract

Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is a well-known regulator and effecter of many cellular processes including wound healing. In the cornea, either too much or too little MMP-9 can be detrimental to overall wound repair. We investigated the secreted factors as well as the intracellular signaling pathways and the promoter sequences that mediate this… (More)
