BACKGROUND Matrilysin, a secreted matrix metalloproteinase and target gene of Wnt signaling, functions in epithelial repair and host defense, but no role in renal injury has been described. METHODS Matrilysin expression was assessed in human kidney specimens by immunohistochemistry, and in experimental renal injury in mice by immunohistochemistry… CONTINUE READING
