Background: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc and calcium dependent endopeptidases with the combined ability to degrade all the components of the extracellular matrix (ECM). MMP-16 (MT3-MMP) is found in brain, lung, placenta, smooth muscle cells, and malignant tumor tissues including oral melanoma and renal carcinoma . MMP-16 has been shown to activate proMMP-2 and degrade various ECM components including native collagens. MMP-16 has been proposed to possess the potential to directly enhance the growth and invasiveness of cells in vivo, two critical processes for development and carcinogenesis . Structurally, MMP-16 consists of the following domains: a pro domain containing the furin cleavage site, a catalytic domain containing the zinc-binding site, a hinge region, a hemopexin-like domain, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplamasic tail . The structure of the catalytic domain in complex with a hydroxamate inhibitor has been solved . The rhMMP-16PC consists of the pro and catalytic domains, which can be activated by treatment with furin.
