X-ray structure of a hydroxamate inhibitor complex of stromelysin catalytic domain and its comparison with members of the zinc metalloproteinase superfamily.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Stromelysin belongs to a family of zinc-dependent endopeptidases referred to as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs, matrixins) because of their capacity for selective degradation of various components of the extracellular matrix. Matrixins play key roles in diseases as diverse as arthritis and cancer and hence are important targets for therapeutic… (More)
