Epilysin (MMP-28) is the newest member of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family of extracellular proteases. Together the MMPs can degrade almost all components of the extracellular matrix (ECM). MMPs also regulate cell behaviour by releasing growth factors and biologically active peptides from the ECM by modulating cell surface receptors and adhesion molecules and by regulating the activity of mediators of the inflammatory pathways. Epilysin differs from most other MMPs as it is expressed… CONTINUE READING
