Membrane-type 5 matrix metalloproteinase is expressed in differentiated neurons and regulates axonal growth.

Abstract:

Expression of membrane-type (MT) 5 matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) in the mouse brain was examined. MT5-MMP was expressed in the cerebrum in embryos, but it declined after birth. In contrast, expression in the cerebellum started to increase postnatally and continued thereafter. The cells expressing MT5-MMP were postmitotic neurons that showed gelatinolytic activities. Specific expression of MT5-MMP was observed in the neurons but not in the glial cells when embryonal mouse carcinoma P19 cells ...
