MT1-MMP association with membrane lipid rafts facilitates G-CSF--induced hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell mobilization.


OBJECTIVE Soluble matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) facilitate the egress of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPC) from the bone marrow (BM) during granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)-induced mobilization. Because membrane-type (MT)1-MMP, which is localized on the leading edge of migrating cells, activates the latent forms of soluble MMPs, we… (More)
