Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMPs are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
MMP27 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways MMP27 participated on our site, such as Matrix Metalloproteinases, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with MMP27 were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
