MMPs are a group of enzymes involved in matrix degradation. Of the sixteen members of matrix metalloproteinase family, ten exist in soluble form, whereas MT-MMPs exist as integral membrane proteins. MT1-MMP, MT2- MMP, and MT3-MMP, also known as MMP-14, MMP-15, and MMP-16, respectively, contain a C-terminal transmembrane domain anchoring them to the cell surface. They have an 8aa insert in their catalytic domain. MT1-MMP cleaves progelatinase A (MMP-2) and progelatinase B to their active forms. MT1-MMP gets activated through the membrane plasmin cascade. It binds to TIMP-2 first and then to MMP-2, forming a trimer. MT1- MMP also has direct activity against a number of ECM proteins, including gelatin, fibronectin, vitronectin, fibrillar collagens, and aggrecan. Studies on the zebrafish model have illuminated the function of MMP-14 on the remodeling, fin regeneration, and gastrulation.
