TIMP-3 inhibits the procollagen N-proteinase ADAMTS-2.


ADAMTS-2 is an extracellular metalloproteinase responsible for cleaving the N-propeptides of procollagens I-III; an activity necessary for the formation of collagenous ECM (extracellular matrix). The four TIMPs (tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases) regulate the activities of matrix metalloproteinases, which are involved in degrading ECM components. Here… (More)
