Accepted name: membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase-1
Reaction: Endopeptidase activity. Activates progelatinase A by cleavage of the propeptide at Asn37┼Leu. Other bonds hydrolysed include Gly35┼Ile in the propeptide of collagenase 3, and Asn341┼Phe, Asp441┼Leu and Gln354┼Thr in the aggrecan interglobular domain
Other name(s): matrix metalloproteinase 14
Comments: In peptidase family M10, but, unlike most members of the family, is membrane-anchored. Believed to play an important role in the activation of progelatinase A at cell surfaces.
