Gene: Mmp2 (matrix metallopeptidase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mmp2
Name: matrix metallopeptidase 2
Description: Exhibits fibronectin binding activity and peptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to estradiol stimulus; circulatory system development; and reproductive structure development. Localizes to cytoplasm and extracellular space. Used to study artery disease (multiple); conjunctivitis; and ischemia (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including alcohol use disorder; artery disease (multiple); bile duct disease (multiple); brain ischemia (multiple); and liver cirrhosis (multiple). Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in artery disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); ischemia; pseudoxanthoma elasticum; and temporal arteritis. Orthologous to human MMP2 (matrix metallopeptidase 2); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; gonadotropin-releasing hormone signaling pathway; urinary bladder cancer pathway; INTERACTS WITH (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; (R)-lipoic acid; (R)-noradrenaline.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: 72 kDa gelatinase; 72 KDa type IV collagenase; gelatinase A; matrix metalloproteinase 2; matrix metalloproteinase 2 (72 KDa type IV collagenase); matrix metalloproteinase-2; MMP-2
