The 72- and 92-kDa type IV collagenases are members of a group of secreted zinc metalloproteases. Two members of this family, collagenase and stromelysin, have previously been localized to the long arm of chromosome 11. Here we assign both of the two type IV collagenase genes to human chromosome 16. By sequencing, the 72-kDa gene is shown to consist of 13 exons, 3 more than have been reported for the other members of this gene family. The extra exons encode the amino acids of the fibronectin… CONTINUE READING
