Matrix metalloproteinase-23 (IPR028687)

Short name: MMP23

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) degrade most components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and process a number of bioactive molecules.

Matrix metalloproteinase-23 (MMP-23; MEROPS identifier M10.022) is a protease that may regulate the surface expression of some potassium channels by retaining them in the endoplasmic reticulum [PMID: 19965868]. MMP-23 is predominantly expressed in reproductive tissues [PMID: 11328856, PMID: 9988691].
