Background: MMP-9

Matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9), also known as gelatinase B, is a member of the MMP zinc-dependent family of endopeptidases. It cleaves and degrades a variety of targets including important extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins: gelatin, collagen, and elastin, as well as chemokines and extracellular domain plasma membrane proteins (1-3). MMP-9 is synthesized and secreted by several cells including neutrophils, macrophages, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells (4). The monomeric MMP-9 protein is composed of several distinct domains including a signal sequence, a pro-domain which is cleaved upon activation, and a catalytic domain at the n-terminus followed by a hinge region and the c-terminal hemopexin-like domains that contribute to substrate recognition and specificity (5,6). The catalytic domain contains fibronectin type II domains, an active site, and a zinc binding site. MMP-9 can exist as a monomer, disulfide-linked homodimer, or heterodimer in complex with lipocalin‑2 (7,8). MMP-9 activity is regulated at several levels via transcription, post-transcription, translation, secretion, activation, and inhibition. As MMP-9 is involved in ECM remodeling and membrane protein cleavage, it has been widely associated to play a role in several diseases including cancers (9), autoimmune, and cardiovascular diseases (9-11). MMP-9 is consequently an important target of interest for inhibition (11-13). Additionally, it has been found to be a potential biomarker for many types of cancer including pancreatic, osteosarcoma, lung, ovarian, and breast (9).
