EC 126.96.36.199 - Matrilysin
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
matrix metalloproteinase 7
matrix metalloproteinase pump 1
putative (or punctuated) metalloproteinase-1
- Cleavage of Ala14┼Leu and Tyr16┼Leu in B chain of insulin. No action on collagen types I, II, IV, V. Cleaves gelatin chain α2(I) > α1(I).
Found in rat uterus; at 19 kDa, the smallest member of peptidase family M10 (interstitial collagenase family). Similar in specificity to stromelysin, but more active on azocoll.
