Summaries for MMP21 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MMP21 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the matrix metalloproteinase family. Proteins in this family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix for both normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, and disease processes, such as asthma and tumor metastasis. The encoded protein may play an important role in embryogenesis, particularly in neuronal cells, as well as in lymphocyte development and survival. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

GeneCards Summary for MMP21 Gene

MMP21 (Matrix Metallopeptidase 21) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MMP21 include Heterotaxy, Visceral, 7, Autosomal and Visceral Heterotaxy. Among its related pathways are GPCR Pathway and Integrin Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and metallopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MMP19.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MMP21 Gene

  • Plays a specialized role in the generation of left-right asymmetry during embryogenesis. May act as a negative regulator of the NOTCH-signaling pathway (PubMed:26429889, PubMed:26437028). Cleaves alpha-1-antitrypsin (PubMed:12617721).

Tocris Summary for MMP21 Gene

  • Matrix metalloproteases (matrix metalloproteinase, MMPs), also called matrixins, are zinc-dependent endopeptidases and the major proteases in ECM degradation. MMPs are capable of degrading several extracellular molecules and a number of bioactive molecules.

MMP21_HUMAN
  • Heterotaxy, visceral, 7, autosomal (HTX7) [MIM:616749]: A form of visceral heterotaxy, a complex disorder due to disruption of the normal left-right asymmetry of the thoracoabdominal organs. Visceral heterotaxy or situs ambiguus results in randomization of the placement of visceral organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, and stomach. The organs are oriented randomly with respect to the left-right axis and with respect to one another. It can been associated with a variety of congenital defects including cardiac malformations. HTX7 inheritance is autosomal recessive. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:26429889, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26437028}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
