MMP-7 inhibits CTL – tumor cell interaction


In a cleavage assay with recombinant CD95 protein, we could show that MMP-7, cleaved approximately 2–3 kDa from the extracellular N-terminal end of CD95. In coculture experiments with 51Cr-labeled HepG2-cells, we found a significant decrease of cytotoxic action of peptide specific CTLs in the presence of MMP-7. In addition MMP7 leads to a higher adhesion of… (More)
