MMP21 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

MMP21 cDNA / Gene Overview

MMP21 cDNA / gene is a gene with protein product which located on 10q26.2. The MMP21 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, mouse, rat, zebrafish, and frog. 142 organisms have orthologs with human gene MMP21.

MMP21 cDNA / Gene Function

This gene encodes a member of the matrix metalloproteinase family. Proteins in this family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix for both normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, and disease processes, such as asthma and tumor metastasis. The encoded protein may play an important role in embryogenesis, particularly in neuronal cells, as well as in lymphocyte development and survival. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
