Immunolocalization of matrix metalloproteinase-13 on bone surface under osteoclasts in rat tibia.


Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-13 (an interstitial collagenase also called collagenase 3) is involved in degradation of extracellular matrix in various tissues. Using immunohistochemistry and Western blotting, we investigated localization of MMP-13 in rat tibia, to clarify the role of MMP-13 in bone resorption. MMP-13 reactivity was mainly seen on bone… (More)
