Proteasix: A tool for automated and large‐scale prediction of proteases involved in naturally occurring peptide generation
Proteasix, an open‐source peptide‐centric tool that can be used to predict in silico the proteases involved in naturally occurring peptide generation, is developed, which allows CS retrieval and protease associations from a list of peptides. Expand


Analyses of all matrix metalloproteinase members in leukocytes emphasize monocytes as major inflammatory mediators in multiple sclerosis.
Monocytes are prominent contributors of the neuroinflammation in multiple sclerosis through a mechanism that involves their high MMP expression and that they identify specific MMP members as targets for novel therapeutics in the disease. Expand
Matrix Metalloproteinase-28 Deletion Amplifies Inflammatory and Extracellular Matrix Responses to Cardiac Aging
It is concluded that LV inflammation increases with age, and MMP-28 deletion further elevates inflammation and extracellular matrix responses, without altering macrophage numbers or collagen content. Expand
Effects of Deletion of the Matrix Metalloproteinase 9 Gene on Development of Murine Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms
These unique findings suggest that an interaction between these 2 MMPs is necessary to facilitate TAA progression, and demonstrate that MMP-9 gene deletion attenuated TAA formation despite an increase in the zymographic levels of M MP-2. Expand
TIMPs and cardiac remodeling: 'Embracing the MMP-independent-side of the family'.
This review highlights some of the novel data, illustrating the MMP-independent biological properties of the four TIMP family members, and discusses how these cell-specific insights may contribute to the process of cardiac remodeling, disease and failure. Expand
The importance of estimating the therapeutic index in the development of matrix metalloproteinase inhibitors.
The dose-limiting side effect that has hampered M MP inhibitor development (the musculoskeletal syndrome), cardiovascular clinical MMP inhibitor studies, a model of the therapeutic index using marimastat, and progress towards more selective MMP inhibitors not limited by the musculo-arthritis syndrome are described. Expand
Increased levels of interleukin-6 and matrix metalloproteinase-9 are of cardiac origin in acute coronary syndrome
Elevated levels of IL-6, hs-CRP and MMP-9 provide a link between inflammation, matrix degradation and the development and progression of ACS. Expand
Matrix metalloproteinase-2 and myocardial oxidative stress injury: beyond the matrix.
MMP-2 is emerging as an important signalling protease implicated in the proteolytic regulation of various intracellular proteins in myocardial oxidative stress injury and its regulation at several levels including its expression, post-translational modifications, and regulation by endogenous tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases, caveolin, and small molecule MMP inhibitors. Expand
Matrix Metalloproteinase Inhibitors
This article critically review the major structural determinants of the selectivity and the milestones of past design efforts of MMPIs where 2-/3-dimensional structure-based methods were intensively applied, and analyse the in vitro screening and preclinical/clinical pharmacology approaches. Expand
Matrix metalloproteinases: what do they not do? New substrates and biological roles identified by murine models and proteomics.
A shift in the MMP functional paradigm is highlighted, together with the difficulties associated with current methods of studying proteases this highlights the need for new high content degradomics approaches to uncover and annotate MMP activities in vivo and identify novel interactions within the protease web.
