PURPOSE Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are a family of proteolytic enzymes that degrade basement membrane and extracellular matrix proteins. To gain information on the possible role of MMPs in choroidal neovascularization (CNV), we have analyzed the mRNA expression of MMP-2 and MMP-9, two forms of MMPs implicated in ocular neovascularization, in a rat… CONTINUE READING
