Matrix metalloproteinases in kidney disease progression and repair: a case of flipping the coin.

Abstract

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have pleiotropic enzymatic actions that go far beyond degradation of extracellular matrix. Both the multiplicity of their targets and the complexity of their regulation account for a variety of biological effects. In renal diseases, MMP effects may be different and/or opposite during the different phases of the pathology… (More)
