  • Official Full Name

    matrix metallopeptidase 1 (interstitial collagenase)

  • Overview

    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. This gene encodes a secreted enzyme which breaks down the interstitial collagens, types I, II, and III. The gene is part of a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.3. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

What is mmp1 protein?

The MMP1 protein, also known as matrix metalloproteinase 1, is an enzyme that belongs to the matrix metalloproteinase family. It is produced by various cells in the body, including fibroblasts, macrophages, and endothelial cells. MMP1 is involved in the breakdown and remodeling of the extracellular matrix, which is the structural framework of tissues.

The main function of MMP1 is to degrade the collagens present in the extracellular matrix, specifically type I, II, and III collagens. This allows for tissue remodeling during normal physiological processes such as development, wound healing, and tissue repair. MMP1 plays a critical role in maintaining tissue homeostasis by controlling cell migration, tissue morphogenesis, and angiogenesis.

However, overexpression and dysregulation of MMP1 have been associated with various pathological conditions. Excessive MMP1 activity can lead to abnormal tissue remodeling, tissue degradation, and disease progression. It has been implicated in several diseases, including cancer, arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic lung diseases.

What is the function of mmp1 protein?

MMP1 is secreted as an inactive zymogen and requires activation to become enzymatically active. Once activated, MMP1 can initiate the breakdown of collagen fibers, thereby facilitating tissue remodeling and turnover. It is involved in normal physiological processes such as development, wound healing, and tissue repair. However, excessive MMP1 activity has been associated with pathological conditions such as tissue degradation in arthritis, cancer invasion and metastasis, and fibrosis.

In addition to its role in collagen degradation, MMP1 can also cleave other ECM components, growth factors, cytokines, and cell adhesion molecules, thereby influencing various cellular processes such as cell migration, angiogenesis, and immune response.

Mmp1 related signaling pathway

The signaling pathway related to Mmp1 involves the activation of certain transcription factors such as AP-1 (activator protein 1) and NF-κB (nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells). These transcription factors regulate the expression of Mmp1 gene and promote the production of Mmp1 protein.

Mmp1 Related Diseases

  •  Cancer therapy: MMP1 is a promising target for developing anticancer drugs and blocking tumor growth and metastasis.
  •  Arthritis treatment: Inhibiting MMP1 activity can slow cartilage and bone degradation in arthritis.
  •  Neurodegenerative diseases: MMP1 inhibition could reduce amyloid plaque formation and neuronal damage in Alzheimer's.
  •  Neurodegenerative diseases: MMP1 inhibition could reduce amyloid plaque formation and neuronal damage in Alzheimer's.

Biomedical Application of mmp1 Protein

In terms of biomedical applications, Mmp1 protein and its inhibitors have been explored as potential therapeutic targets for various diseases. In conditions characterized by excessive tissue remodeling, such as fibrosis, the inhibition of Mmp1 activity can prevent the degradation of extracellular matrix and tissue damage. On the other hand, promoting Mmp1 activity can be beneficial in wound healing and tissue regeneration processes.

Furthermore, Mmp1 has been studied as a potential biomarker for certain diseases, particularly in cancer. Elevated levels of Mmp1 have been associated with tumor progression, invasion, and metastasis, making it a potential diagnostic and prognostic marker for cancer.
