General description

This book contains comprehensive data about matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), enzymes which break down the extracellular matrix. It covers their sequences, three-dimensional structure, activation, substrates, specificity, inhibition, biological roles and function, along with protein sequence alignments. MMPs are regulated by their inhibitors (TIMPs). This volume contains sequences, three-dimensional structures and biological roles of TIMPs along with over 1700 references on MMPs and TIMPs.
