  • Background: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are proteolytic enzymes that are essentially involved in turnover of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The aim was to investigate the diagnostic value of MMP-7 and MMP-10 as tumor markers in pleural effusion (PE) and evaluate the value of combining MMP-7, MMP-10 and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) assays as diagnostic aids for malignant cells. Materials and Methods: A total of 179 patients with PE (87 malignant and 92 benign) were included in this study. The levels of MMP-7 and MMP-10 were measured using ELISA. Results: Values for MMP-7 and MMP-10 were significantly higher in malignant PE than those in benign PE (P<0.01). Among all variables evaluated, logistic regression found that MMP-7 and MMP-10 were significantly correlated with the presence of malignant disease (P<0.01). Analysis of receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curves showed that the area under the curve of MMP-10 (0.806) was significantly larger than that of MMP-7 (0.771) and CEA (0.789) (P<0.01). With parallel interpretation, the combination of MMP-10 and CEA achieved the higher sensitivity of 94.6%. The combination of MMP-7 and CEA in serial interpretation was able to boost the specificity to 95.7%. The combination of MMP-7, MMP-10 and CEA produced better sensitivity, specificity, PPV and NPV than MMP-7 and MMP-10 alone. Conclusion: MMP-7 and MMP-10 in PE may represent helpful adjuncts to conventional diagnostic tools in ruling out malignancy as a probable diagnosis, thus guiding the selection of patients who might benefit from further invasive procedures.

  • Our aim was to test the hypothesis that preoperative serum levels of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) and -9 (MMP-9) and tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase (TIMP-1) levels correlate with pathological features. Serum levels of MMP-7, and MMP-9 and TIMP-1 were determined in 90 bladder cancer patients and 40 healthy controls using an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. Preoperative serum MMP-7 and MMP-9 levels were significantly higher in cancer patients than control groups (p<0.001). In contast, serum TIMP-1 levels were lower (p<0.001). Alteration in MMP-7, and MMP-9, and TIMP-1 production may contribute to tumor angiogenesis and be associated with clinic-pathological features.

  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate expression and prognostic value of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. CRC tissues and corresponding distal normal mucosa tissues of 118 CRC patients were assessed by immunohistochemistry. Correlations between MMP-7 expression, patients' clinic pathological features, and overall survival rate were analyzed. We found that positive expression of MMP-7 in CRC tissues was significantly higher than that in distal normal mucosa (61.0% vs. 39.8%, p =0.001). Poor histological differentiation, advanced clinical stage and lymph node metastasis were significantly correlated with MMP-7 expression in CRC. The overall survival rate was significantly higher in the MMP-7 negative group than the positive group (Log-rank test= 9.957, p= 0.002). MMP-7 appeared as a significant independent prognostic factor through multivariate survival analysis. Collectively, we found MMP-7 expression to be correlated with progression and metastasis of CRC and thus could be used as a predictive marker of prognosis in CRC patients.

  • Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is considered to be an important component in the progression of inflammation. Monocytes/macrophages are prominent at inflammation sites, and activation of these cells by stimulants such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) leads to the production of significant amounts of MMP-9. Here, we show that LPS-induced MMP-9 production and activation was inhibited by the water extract from the fruit of Chaenomeles sinensis (CS), the root of Polygonum cuspidatum (PC), but increased by the extract from Boswellia carterii (BC). To investigate the mechanism by which those extracts inhibits MMP-9 activation, we examined the level of MMP-9 mRNA expression. We observed a significant change in the MMP-9 expression between LPS alone and LPS plus Chaenomeles sinensis and Polygonum cuspidatum extracts-treated cells. In addition, LPS significantly up-regulated MMP-9 promoter activity in Raw 264.7 cells, which was attenuated by the CS and PS extracts. However, water extracts from Boswellia carterii increased MMP-9 expression and MMP-9 promoter activity which were induced by LPS treatment in Raw 264.7 cells. These data suggest that water extracts from Chaenomeles sinensis and Polygonum cuspidatum can modulate anti-inflammatory immune response, which may be in part associated with the regulation of MMP-9 production and/or activation through the regulation of MMP-9 expression in mouse macrophage cells.

  • Metastasis is the primary cause of from breast cancer mortality. Cell migration and invasion play important roles in neoplastic metastasis. Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), which degrades the extracellular matrix (ECM), plays an important role in cancer cell invasion. NF-${\kappa}B$ is transcription factor important in the regulation of MMP-9, as the promoter of MMP-9 gene contains binding sites for NF-${\kappa}B$. Brazilin, an active component of sappan wood (Caesalpinia sappan), decreases TPA-induced MMP-9 expression and invasion in MCF-7 cells. Also, brazilin suppressed NF-${\kappa}B$ activation in TPA-treated MCF-7 cells. Taken together, we demonstrated that the inhibition of TPA-induced MMP-9 expression and cell invasion by brazilin is mediated by the suppression of the NF-${\kappa}B$ pathway in MCF-7 cells. This result suggest brazilin provide a potential therapeutic app roach for the treatment of breast cancer.

  • The French paradox has been attributed to the antioxidant properties of flavonoids present in the red wine. Amentoflavone(AF) is a bi-flavonoid compound with anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory activities. We isolated AF from Selaginella tamariscina, and studied its effects on nuclear factor-B(NF-B)-mediated MMP-9 gene expression in RAW264.7 cells. AF blocked the lipopolysaccharide(LPS)-induced expression of MMP-9. Zymographic and immunoblot analyses showed that AF suppressed LPS-induced MMP-9 expression in a dose-dependent manner. To clarify the mechanistic basis for its inhibition of MMP-9 induction, we examined the effect of AF on the transactivation of MMP-9 gene by luciferase reporter activity using -1.59 kb flanking region. AF potently suppressed the reporter gene activity. This inhibition was characterized by down-regulation of MMP-9, which was transcriptionally regulated at NF-B site and activation protein-1 (AP-1) site in the MMP-9 promoter, two important nuclear transcription factors that are involved in MMP-9 expression. These findings indicate the efficacy of AF in inhibiting MMP-9 expression through the transcription factors NF-B and AP-1 on LPS-induced RAW264.7 cells.

  • 여성에게 특히 높은 발병률을 보이는 유방암은 다양한 인자에 의해 암세포 침투와 전이가 발생한다. 그중에서 MMP-9은 유방암에서 높은 발현율을 나타내며, 유방암 세포의 침투와 전이에 주요하게 작용한다. MMP-9은 다양한 성장인자와 사이토카인, PMA 등에 의해 발현이 유도되며 세포 내 자연적으로 발생된 내생적 억제인자인 TIMP-1과 -2에 의해 그 활성 및 발현이 조절된다. MMP-9의 활성 및 발현을 저해하기 위해 사용한 물질은 모링가 추출물로 모링가의 모든 부위가 다양한 질환을 치료하는 것으로 알려져 있다. 이 연구에서는 대표적으로 모링가씨, 뿌리, 잎, 열매 추출물질을 이용하여 MMP-9의 활성억제 유무를 연구하였으며, MCF-7 세포에서 모링가 뿌리추출물이 MMP-9을 가장 효과적으로 억제하였다. 또한 MDA-MB-231을 이용한 비교실험에서도 세포특이성 없이 MMP-9의 활성 및 발현이 모링가 뿌리 추출물에 의해 억제되었고 단백질과 mRNA 발현에서도 동일한 결과가 도출되었다. 뿐만 아니라 암세포 침투실험에서도 모링가 뿌리 추출물에 의해 암세포 침투가 50% 이상 감소 되었으나, TIMP-1과 -2 mRNA 발현은 모링가 뿌리 추출물에 의해 저해되지 않았으므로 모링가 뿌리 추출물이 MMP-9 활성 및 발현 저해를 통해 암세포 침투를 저해시키는 것으로 예상된다. 그리고 MMP-9 활성 및 발현 조절기전을 확인하기 위해 MAP kinase의 인산화를 확인한 실험에서 모링가 뿌리 추출물이 ERK와 JNK의 인산화를 억제시킴을 확인하였다. 결론적으로 이 실험을 통해 모링가 추출물 중 뿌리 추출물이 MMP-9 활성 및 발현저해에 가장 효과적이며, ERK와 JNK의 인산화 조절을 통해 MMP-9의 활성 및 발현을 직접적으로 조절함을 확인할 수 있었다.

  • Objective: This study aimed to explore the expression of tissue factor (TF), protease activated receptor-2 (PAR-2), and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in the MCF-7 breast cancer cell line and influence on invasiveness. Methods: Stable MCF-7 cells transfected with TF cDNA and with TF ShRNA were established. TF, PAR-2, and MMP-9 protein expression was analyzed using indirect immunofluorescence and invasiveness was evaluated using a cell invasion test. Effects of an exogenous PAR-2 agonist were also examined. Results: TF protein expression significantly differed between the TF cDNA and TF ShRNA groups. MMP-9 protein expression was significantly correlated with TF protein expression, but PAR-2 protein expression was unaffected. The PAR-2 agonist significantly enhanced MMP-9 expression and slightly increased TF and PAR-2 expression in the TF ShRNA group, but did not significantly affect protein expression in MCF-7 cells transfected with TF cDNA. TF and MMP-9 expression was positively correlated with the invasiveness of tumor cells. Conclusion: TF, PAR-2, and MMP-9 affect invasiveness of MCF-7 cells. TF may increase MMP-9 expression by activating PAR-2.

  • Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are zinc-dependent endopeptidases which degrade extracellular matrix (ECM) during embryogenesis, wound healing, and tissue remodeling. Dysregulation of MMP activity is also associated with various pathological inflammatory conditions. In this study, we examined the expression pattern of MMPs during PMA-induced differentiation of THP-1 monocytic cells into macrophages. We found that MMP1, MMP8, MMP3, MMP10, MMP12, MMP19, MMP9, and MMP7 were upregulated during differentiation whereas MMP2 remained unchanged. Expression of MMPs increased in a time-dependent manner; MMP1, MMP8, MMP3, MMP10, and MMP12 increased beginning at 60 hr post PMA treatment whereas MMP19, MMP9, and MMP7 increased beginning at 24 hr post PMA treatment. To identify signal transduction pathways involved in PMA-induced upregulation of MMPs, we treated PMA-differentiated THP-1 cells with specific inhibitors for PKC, MEK1, NF-${\kappa}B$, PI3K, p38 MAPK and PLC. We found that inhibition of the MEK1 pathway blocked PMA-induced upregulation of all MMPs to varying degrees except for MMP-2. In addition, expression of select MMPs was inhibited by PI3K, p38 MAPK and PLC inhibitors. In conclusion, we show that of the MMPs examined, most MMPs were up-regulated during differentiation of monocyte into macrophage via the MEK1 pathway. These results provide basic information for studying MMPs expression during macrophage differentiation.

  • Sulforaphane은 십자가화 채소에 존재하는 화합물로 항염증, 항암 및 신생혈관 생성의 억제 효과가 알려짐으로써 최근 많은 연구가 활발히 이루어지고 있으나, LPS에 의한 MMP-9 활성 조절에 대한 연구는 매우 미흡한 편이다. 따라서 본 연구에서 sulforaphane이 LPS 유도에 의한 MMP-9 활성에 미치는 영향에 대해서 조사해 보았다. Raw 264.7 세포에 sulforaphane을 전처리 한 후 LPS를 처리하여 gelatin zymography를 실시해 본 결과, LPS에 의해 유도된 MMP-9 활성 증가가 sulforaphane 농도 의존적으로 감소됨을 확인 하였다. 또한 RT-PCR과 MMP-9의 luciferase assay를 통한 실험에서 sulforaphane의 MMP-9 억제효과가 전사단계에서 조절됨을 추측 할 수 있었다. MMP-9 promoter 부위에 여러 가지의 전사조절인자 결합부위가 존재한다. 특히 AP-1과 NF-${\kappa}B$가 중요 전사조절인자로 작용하여 MMP-9 발현조절에 관여한다. 본 실험에서 sulforaphane에 의한 MMP-9 억제효과 기전에 이들 전사조절인자들의 중요한 역할을 조사하였다. AP-1과 NF-${\kappa}B$ 결합부위를 변형 시킨 vector를 transfection하여 MMP-9의 promoter 활성을 측정한 결과, 정상 vector에 비해 그 활성도가 현저히 떨어짐을 확인하였고, LPS에 의해 증가되는 AP-1과 NF-${\kappa}B$의 basal promoter 활성 또한 sulforaphane에 의해 감소됨을 관찰 할 수 있었다. 이상의 결과에서 sulforaphane의 MMP-9 활성억제효과는 AP-1과 NF-${\kappa}B$와 같은 전사인자들이 MMP-9의 전사를 조절함으로써 일어나는 것임을 알 수 있었다. 그리고 sulforaphane은 세포의 invasion능력 또한 효과적으로 억제시킴을 관찰 할 수 있었는데 이는 MMP-9 활성억제효과와 밀접한 관련이 있음을 추측 할 수 있었다.
