Mmp-9 inhibitors in the brain: can old bullets shoot new targets?

Abstract

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are either secreted or membrane-bound proteases, capable to degrade extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins as well as a large number of non-ECM proteins, such as growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, cell surface receptors, serine proteinase inhibitors and other MMPs. MMPs play major physiological roles in reproduction, growth… (More)
