Differential roles of matrix metalloproteinase-9 and -2, depending on proliferation or differentiation of retinoblastoma cells.

Abstract

PURPOSE To investigate the differential roles of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and MMP-2 in the proliferation or differentiation of retinoblastoma cells. METHODS Cell proliferation assay with an MMP-9 inhibitor and cell viability assay with an MMP-2 inhibitor were performed in retinoblastoma cells with 5 ng/mL fibroblast growth factor 2 for… (More)
