MMP26 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

MMP26 cDNA / Gene Overview

MMP26 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 11p15.4. 54 organisms have orthologs with human gene MMP26.

MMP26 cDNA / Gene Function

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. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate the mature enzyme. This enzyme may degrade collagen type IV, fibronectin, fibrinogen, and beta-casein, and activate matrix metalloproteinase-9 by cleavage. The protein differs from most MMP family members in that it lacks a conserved C-terminal protein domain. The encoded protein may promote cell invasion in multiple human cancers.
