Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP)-2 forms a noncovalent complex with the precursor of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (proMMP-2, progelatinase A) through interaction of the C-terminal domain of each molecule. We have isolated the proMMP-2-TIMP-2 complex from the medium of human uterine cervical fibroblasts and investigated the processes involved in its activation by 4-aminophenylmercuric acetate (APMA). The treatment of the complex with APMA-activated proMMP-2 by disrupting the Cys73-Zn2… CONTINUE READING
