High impact information on MMP-13

  • PGE2 dose-dependently inhibited the expression of the differentiation-related genes, colX, VEGF, MMP-13, and alkaline phosphatase gene, and enzyme activity with significant effects at concentrations as low as 10(-10) M [1].
  • Moreover, weight loading enhanced the penetration of blood vessels into the growth plates and enhanced the gene expression of the matrix metalloproteinases MMP9 and MMP13 in those growth plates [2].
  • Western blots with antibodies to bacterial collagenase, matrix metallo-proteinases 13 (MMP-13), an endogenous collagenase, and MMP-2, an endogenous gelatinase, were also done to determine the presence of an endogenous collagenase [3].
