- matrix metallopeptidase 9,
MMP9 is a member of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family. It is a secreted protein that may play an essential role in local proteolysis of the 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. MMP9 also plays a role in leukocyte migration. Murine studies suggest a role in tumor-associated tissue remodeling
