Stromelysin-1 (transin-1)

MMP-7

Matrilysin (PUMP)

MMP-8

Collagenase-2 (neutrophil collagenase)

MMP-9

Gelatinase-B (92 kDa gelatinase, 92 kDa type IV

 

collagenase)

MMP-10

Stromelysin-2 (transin-2)

MMP-11

MMP-15

MT2-MMP

MMP-16

MT3-MMP

MMP-17

MT4-MMP

MMP-18

Collagenase-4

MMP-19

 

MMP-20

Enamelysin

MMP-21

 

MMP-22

 

MMP-23

CA-MMP

MMP-24

MMP-26

Endometase (matrilysin-2)

  1. *There is no MMP-4, MMP-5, or MMP-6. After matrilysin was discovered and designated as MMP-7, MMP-4 to MMP-6 were determined to be either MMP-2 or MMP-3. Collagenase-4 was isolated from Xenopus. A mammalian homolog has not been found.
