Summary: Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are
involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal
physiological processes, such as embryonic development,
reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease
processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are
secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved
by extracellular proteinases. The protein encoded by this gene
cleaves type II collagen more efficiently than types I and III. It
may be involved in articular cartilage turnover and cartilage
pathophysiology associated with osteoarthritis. The gene is part of
a cluster of MMP genes which localize to chromosome 11q22.3.
