Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) together degrade virtually all the components of the extracellular matrix and are likely to play a role in remodeling of endometrial tissue during the normal menstrual cycle. Primary cultures of human endometrial stromal cells secreted a number of MMPs. MMP-1 (interstitial collagenase) and MMP-3 (stromelysin-1) were measured in culture medium by specific enzyme assays. Production of the enzymes did not correlate with the time of the menstrual cycle at which the… CONTINUE READING
