The matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family (approximately 25 members in mammals) has been implicated in extracellular matrix remodeling associated with embryonic development, cancer formation and progression, and various other physiological and pathological events. MMP-14 is a membrane-bound matrix metalloproteinase (MT-MMP) capable of mediating pericellular proteolysis of extracellular matrix components. MMP-14 is therefore thought to be an important molecular tool for cellular remodeling of the surrounding matrix (1). Gelatinase A (type-IV collagenase; M(r) 72,000) is produced by tumour stroma cells and is believed to be crucial for their invasion and metastasis, acting by degrading extracellular matrix macro-molecules such as type IV collagen. MMP-14 may thus trigger invasion by tumor cells by activating pro-gelatinase A on the tumor cell surface (2). Observations identify MT1-MMP as a tumor-derived growth factor that regulates proliferation by controlling cell geometry within the confines of the 3D extracellular matrix (ECM) (3).
