Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) belong to a family of proteases that are essential for the breakdown of extracellular matrix. Thus they play an important role in apoptosis, and tumor cell growth, invasion, and metastasis, as well as in angiogenesis and wound healing. All MMPs contain the common domain structures, which include a signal sequence, a propeptide, a catalytic domain and a hemopexin-like (Hpx) domain. Human MMP-21 is the probable target gene of the Wnt pathway. In addition, the expression of MMP-21 is controlled uniquely by Pax and Notch transcription factors known to be critical for organogenesis. MMP-21 is expressed transiently in mouse embryogenesis and increased in embryonic neuronal tissues. Our observations clearly indicate that there is an important specific function for MMP-21 in embryogenesis, especially in neuronal cells.
