General description

Experts detail proven laboratory techniques for the study of MMPs. Methods include those for the expression and purification of MMPs and TIMPs, for the detection of MMPs and TIMPs at both the protein and mRNA levels, and for the assay of MMP and TIMP activities in a variety of circumstances. Each method includes step-by-step instructions and notes variant applications and pitfalls to avoid. A selective overview of the MMP arena states where the field has been, where it is, and where it is going.
