Regulation and interactions of MT1-MMP and MMP-20 in human odontoblasts and pulp tissue in vitro.


MT1-MMP is a cell-membrane-bound metalloenzyme that activates other proMMPs such as proMMP-2 and -13. We studied MT1-MMP expression in mature human odontoblasts and pulp tissue, the regulation of MT1-MMP expression by growth factors TGF-beta1 and BMP-2, and the activation of odontoblast-derived MMP-20 by MT1-MMP. MT1-MMP mRNA is expressed by native and… (More)
