An Ilomastat-CD Eye Drop Formulation to Treat Ocular Scarring

57 views | Mar 06 2020

Mohamed-Ahmed AHA et al. showed that Ilomastat-CD has the potential to be formulated as an eye drop for use as an antifibrotic, which may have implications for the prevention of scarring in many settings, for example glaucoma filtration surgery. [Read the Full Post]

Hypoxia-Induced Cleavage Of Soluble ephrinA1 From Cancer Cells Is Mediated By MMP-2 And Associates With Angiogenesis In Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma

82 views | Dec 04 2019

Ma TT et al suggested a possible novel mechanism that ephrinA1 secretion is mediated by HIF-1α/MMP-2 signaling cascade which may play pivotal roles in OSCC neovascularization in a paracrine manner. [Read the Full Post]

MMP14-Containing Exosomes Cleave VEGFR1 and Promote VEGFA-Induced Migration and Proliferation of Vascular Endothelial Cells

133 views | Jun 16 2019

Han KY et al. showed that MMP14-containing exosomes may be involved in the regulation of corneal neovascularization through degradation of VEGFR1 and VEGFA-induced endothelial cell proliferation and migration. [Read the Full Post]

3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, ecstasy) produces edema due to BBB disruption induced by MMP-9 activation in rat hippocampus

528 views | Aug 16 2018

Pérez-Hernández M et al. provided evidence enough to conclude that MDMA induces edema of short duration due to BBB disruption mediated by MMP-9 activation. [Read the Full Post]

HIV-1 gp120 Glycoprotein Interacting with Dendritic Cell-specific Intercellular Adhesion Molecule 3-grabbing Non-integrin (DC-SIGN) Down-Regulates Tight Junction Proteins to Disrupt the Blood Retinal Barrier and Increase Its Permeability

410 views | Jul 09 2018

Qian YW et al. elucidated a novel mechanism by which HIV, type 1 invades ocular tissues and provides additional insights into the translocation or invasion process of ocular complication-associated pathogens. [Read the Full Post]

ADAMTS13 and 15 are not regulated by the full length and N-terminal domain forms of TIMP-1, -2, -3 and -4

516 views | Jun 04 2018

Guo C et al. indicated that TIMPs are not the regulators of these two ADAMTS proteinases. [Read the Full Post]
