Membrane type-1-matrix metalloproteinase expressed by prostate carcinoma cells cleaves human laminin-5 beta3 chain and induces cell migration.


Degradation of the extracellular matrix by proteolytic enzymes is a central aspect of physiological and pathologic tissue-remodeling processes such as trophoblastic implantation, wound healing, and tumor invasion. We have hypothesized that prostate adenocarcinoma cell invasion through the normal basal lamina is attributable in part to metalloproteinase… (More)
