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. 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 MMP2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MMP21 Gene

  • May have an important and specific function in tumor progression and embryogenesis. Cleaves alpha-1-antitrypsin

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.
