Table 1 Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs)

From: Matrix metalloproteinases in lung biology

MMP designation* Common name (other or previous names)
MMP-1 Collagenase-1 (fibroblast collagenase, interstitial
  collagenase)
MMP-2 Gelatinase-A (72 kDa gelatinase, 72 kDa type IV
  collagenase)
MMP-3 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 Stromelysin-3
MMP-12 Macrophage metalloelastase
MMP-13 Collagenase-3 (rat collagenase)
MMP-14 MT1-MMP (membrane-type MMP)
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 MT5-MMP
MMP-25 Leukolysin (MT6-MMP)
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.
