Background Information

MMP14, also named as MT1-MMP, is a key matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family member which plays a crucial role in tumor growth, invasion and metastasis. MT1-MMP is a cell membrane-bound proteinase, and it enhances degradation of collagen IV, a major component of the basement membrane, by forming a complex with tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) to activate pro-MMP-2. MT1-MMP can influence venous invasion, intrahepatic metastasis , and patient outcome in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MT1-MMP was reported to be present in centromere and could lead to chromosome instability in MDCK cells, indicating that MT1-MMP may have more novel functions in the intracellular compartments. In western blotting, pro-MMP14 (65 kDa) and MMP14 (51 kDa) bands showed with the truncated MMP14 (45, 42, 35, 20 kDa) forms (PMID:12097451).
