High impact information on mmp2

  • We find that expression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), known in other systems to be regulated in a stretch-responsive manner, is in renal endothelial cells and is regulated by flow, suggesting that an MMP-2-sensitive event may be downstream of the flow-related signal [1].
