Zinc metallopeptidases that contain the His-Glu-Xaa-Xaa-His (HEXXH) motif generally have a third ligand of the metal ion that may be either a Glu residue (in clan MA) or a His residue (in clan MB) (Rawlings and Barrett (1995) Methods Enzymol. 248, 183-228). Thimet oligopeptidase has not yet been assigned to either clan, and both Glu and His residues have been proposed as the third ligand. We mutated candidate ligand residues in the recombinant enzyme and identified Glu, His and Asp residues that are important for catalytic activity and/or stability of the protein. However, neither of the Glu and His residues close to the HEXXH motif that have previously been suggested to be ligands is required for the binding of zinc. We conclude that thimet oligopeptidase is not a member of clan MA or clan MB and it is likely that the enzyme possesses a catalytic site and protein fold different from those identified in any metallopeptidase to date. The definitive identification of the third zinc ligand may well require

Pneumococci display large zinc metalloproteinases on the surface, including the IgA protease, which cleaves human IgA1 in the hinge region, the ZmpC proteinase, which cleaves human matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9), and two other proteinases, ZmpB and ZmpD, whose substrates have not yet been identified. Surface metalloproteinases are antigenic and have been linked to virulence. The genes encoding these proteinases reside in three distinct loci: two loci specific for zmpB and zmpC, and a third, the iga locus, containing iga and zmpD. Data obtained by this and other groups have shown that pneumococcal metalloproteinase genes are transcribed and yield mature and enzymatically active proteins. Since the presence of the four proteinase genes is variable in the pneumococcal strains whose genomes have been sequenced, the presence of these genes in a collection of 218 pneumococcal isolates, mostly from invasive disease, was investigated. The data showed that zmpB and iga were present in all the isolates

This gene encodes a member of the matrix metalloproteinase family. Proteins in this family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix for both normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, and disease processes, such as asthma and tumor metastasis. The encoded protein may play an important role in embryogenesis, particularly in neuronal cells, as well as in lymphocyte development and survival. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013 ...
Background:. A continuing challenge in breast cancer surgery is the difficulty with intraoperative lymph node status determination and achieving negative surgical margins. Current techniques such as frozen section, touch prep and intraoperative radiographic imaging are time consuming and vary in accuracy from institution to institution. Our study is a first-in-human study of a novel ratiometric activatable cell penetrating fluorescent peptide dye conjugate that labels breast cancer tumor tissue in vivo.. Methods:. AVB-620 is a substrate for and activated by proteases in the matrix metalloproteinase family. It has two fluorophores moieties linked by a cleavable peptide. Upon cleavage, there is an increase in fluorescence intensity and a change in the predominant wavelength of fluorescence emission. AVB-620 was given preoperatively via intravenous infusion to stage 0-III breast cancer patients. Patients were monitored for safety and AVB-620 pharmacokinetic parameters determined. After 12-20 hours, ...
Pz-peptidase was purified from chicken liver as a protein of Mr 80,000 and pI 5.2. The purified enzyme hydrolysed phenylazobenzyloxycarbonyl-Pro-Leu-Gly-Pro-D-Arg, 2,4-dinitrophenyl-Pro-Leu-Gly-Pro-Trp-D-Lys. 7-methoxycoumarin-3-carboxylyl-Pro-Leu-Gly-Pro-D-(2,4-dinitropheny l)Lys, benzoyl-Gly-Ala-Ala-Phe-p-aminobenzoate, Ac-Ala4 (at the Ala-1-Ala-2 bond) and bradykinin (at the Phe-5-Ser-6 bond). No hydrolysis of proteins was detected. Loss of activity in the presence of EDTA or 1,10-phenanthroline was time-dependent. Metal ions found to restore activity after treatment with EDTA were Zn2+, Mn2+, Ca2+, Co2+ and Cd2+, in decreasing order of effectiveness. Ni2+, Fe2+ and higher concentrations of Zn2+ were inhibitory. Inhibition by N-[1-(RS)-carboxy-3-phenylpropyl]-Ala-Ala-Tyr-p-aminobenzoate and related compounds showed Ki values (down to 5 nM) somewhat lower than those for the rat enzyme. Pz-peptidase was activated by low concentrations of 2-mercaptoethanol and dithiothreitol, but inhibited by ...

Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP-3) is a dual inhibitor of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and some adamalysins, two families of extracellular and cell surface metalloproteinases that function in extracellular matrix turnover and the shedding of cell surface proteins. The mechanism of inhibition of MMPs by TIMPs has been well characterized, and since the catalytic domains of MMPs and adamalysins are homologous, it was assumed that the interaction of TIMP-3 with adamalysins is closely similar. Here we report that the inhibition of the extracellular region of ADAM-17 (tumor necrosis factor alpha-converting enzyme (TACE)) by the inhibitory domain of TIMP-3 (N-TIMP-3) shows positive cooperativity. Also, mutations in the core of the MMP interaction surface of N-TIMP-3 dramatically reduce the binding affinity for MMPs but have little effect on the inhibitory activity for TACE. These results suggest that the mechanism of inhibition of ADAM-17 by TIMP-3 may be distinct from that for MMPs. The
Endothelin-converting enzyme (ECE-1) is a type II integral membrane protein which plays a key role in the biosynthetic pathway of the vasoconstricting endothelins. Three ECE-1 isoforms, differing by their N-terminal cytoplasmic tails, are generated from a single gene. When expressed in CHO cells, they display comparable enzymatic activity but whereas ECE-1a is strongly expressed at the cell surface, ECE-1b is exclusively intracellular and ECE-1c presents an intermediate distribution. In the present study these different localizations were further described at the ultrastructural level, by electron microscope immunocytochemistry. To characterize the motifs responsible for the intracellular localization of ECE-1b we constructed chimeric proteins and point mutants. Two di-leucine-based motifs, contained in the N-terminal part of ECE-1b, were thus identified. One of these motifs (LV), displayed by both ECE-1b and ECE-1c, accounts for the reduced surface expression of ECE-1c as compared to ECE-1a. ...
Matrix Metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) is secreted as a zymogen, the activation of which has been associated with metastatic progression in human breast cancer (HBC). Concanavalin A (Con A) has been found to induce activation of MMP-2 in invasive HBC cell lines. Con A effects on the expression of mRNA for membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase (MT-MMP), a newly described cell surface-associated MMP, showed a close temporal correlation with induction of MMP-2 activation. It is surprising that MT-MMP mRNA is constitutively present in the uninduced MDA-MB-231 cell, despite a lack of MMP-2 activation. We have used actinomycin D to demonstrate a partial requirement for de novo gene expression in the induction of MMP-2 activation by Con A in MDA-MB-231 HBC cells. Furthermore, this transcriptional response to Con A appeared to require the continued presence of Con A for its manifestation. The nontranscriptional component of the Con A induction manifests rapidly, is quite substantial, and persists strongly ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Roles of the signal peptide and mature domains in the secretion and maturation of the neutral metalloprotease from Streptomyces cacaoi. AU - Chang, Su Chih. AU - Su, Mei Han. AU - Wu Lee, Yan-Hwa. PY - 1997/1/1. Y1 - 1997/1/1. N2 - The neutral metalloprotease (Npr) of Streptomyces cacaoi is synthesized as a prepro-Npr precursor form consisting of a secretory signal peptide, a propeptide and the mature metalloprotease. The maturation of Npr occurs extracellularly via an autoproteolytic processing of the secreted pro-Npr. The integrity of the propeptide is essential for the formation of mature active Npr but not for its secretion. In this study we investigated whether the secretion and maturation of Npr require the integrity of its signal peptide region and mature protease domain. Five signal peptide mutants were generated, including the substitution mutations at the positively charged region (mutant 1R6LE), the central hydrophobic region (mutants GI19EL and G19N), the boundary of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 1 (MT-1-MMP), MMP-2, and its inhibitor in nephrogenesis. AU - Kanwar, Yashpal S.. AU - Ota, Kosuke. AU - Yang, Qiwei. AU - Wada, Jun. AU - Kashihara, Naoki. AU - Tian, Yufeng. AU - Wallner, Elisabeth I.. PY - 1999/12. Y1 - 1999/12. N2 - Extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, their integrin receptors, and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), the ECM- degrading enzymes, are believed to be involved in various biological processes, including embryogenesis. In the present study, we investigated the role of membrane type MMP, MT-1-MMP, an activator pro-MMP-2, in metanephric development. Also, its relationship with MMP-2 and its inhibitor, TIMP-2, was studied. Since mRNAs of MT-1-MMP and MMP-2 are respectively expressed in the ureteric bud epithelia and mesenchyme, they are ideally suited for juxtacrine/paracrine interactions during renal development. Northern blot analyses revealed a single ~4.5-kb mRNA transcript of MT-1-MMP, and its ...
Matrix metalloproteinase expression is under strict regulation in physiological conditions. Disruption of the regulatory mechanisms can lead to tissue destruction and is associated with tumour invasion and metastasis. Using the one-hybrid assay technique with a cis-element in the promoter region of the stromelysin (matrix metalloproteinase-3) gene, a cDNA encoding a transcription factor termed ZBP-89 was obtained. The interaction between ZBP-89 and the stromelysin promoter element was confirmed by electrophoretic mobility shift assays with a recombinant ZBP-89. Reporter gene expression under the control of the stromelysin promoter in transiently transfected cells was significantly increased when the cells were cotransfected with a ZBP-89 expression construct. These results indicate that ZBP-89 interacts with the stromelysin promoter and upregulates its activity. As ZBP-89 expression is known to be increased in gastric carcinoma cells, induction of stromelysin expression may be a significant factor in
Pitrilysin is a bacterial protease that is similar to the mammalian insulin-degrading enzyme, which is hypothesized to protect against the onset of Alzheimers disease, and the yeast enzymes Axl1p and Ste23p, which are responsible for production of the a-factor mating pheromone in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The lack of a phenotype associated with pitrilysin deficiency has hindered studies of this enzyme. Herein, we report that pitrilysin can be heterologously expressed in yeast such that it functionally substitutes for the shared roles of Axl1p and Ste23p in pheromone production, resulting in a readily observable phenotype. We have exploited this phenotype to conduct structure-function analyses of pitrilysin and report that residues within four sequence motifs that are highly conserved among M16A enzymes are essential for its activity. These motifs include the extended metalloprotease motif, a second motif that has been hypothesized to be important for the function of M16A enzymes, and two others not
Ectopic expression of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis PE- family gene Rv1818c, triggers apoptosis in the mammalian Jurkat T cells, which is blocked by anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2. Although complete overlap is not observed, a considerable proportion of cellular pools of ectopically expressed Rv1818c localizes to mitochondria. However, recombinant Rv1818c does not trigger release of cytochrome c from isolated mitochondria even though Rv1818c protein induced apoptosis of Jurkat T cells. Apoptosis induced by Rv1818c is blocked by the broad-spectrum caspase inhibitory peptide zVAD-FMK. Unexpectedly, Rv1818c-induced apoptosis is not blocked in a Jurkat sub-clone deficient for caspase-8 (JI 9.2) or in cells where caspase-9 function is inhibited or expression of caspase-9 reduced by siRNA, arguing against a central role for these caspases in Rv1818c-induced apoptotic signaling. Depleting cellular pools of the mitochondrial protein Smac/DIABLO substantially reduces apoptosis consistent with mitochondrial ...

Strikingly, inactivation or loss of the m-AAA protease does not result in the accumulation of long OPA1 isoforms, as predicted by experiments in yeast (Duvezin-Caubet et al., 2007), but decreases their stability. The accelerated cleavage of OPA1 in the absence of the m-AAA protease is mediated by OMA1, a new member of a conserved and widespread family of membrane-bound M48 metallopeptidases. We have previously identified yeast Oma1 in the mitochondrial inner membrane as a peptidase that can substitute for the function of the m-AAA protease during degradation of a misfolded membrane protein (Käser et al., 2003). Similarly, synthetic growth defects have been observed when mutations in the bacterial AAA protease FtsH were combined with mutations in HtpX, which is a distant homologue of OMA1, indicating overlapping proteolytic activities (Shimohata et al., 2002). In agreement with these findings, we demonstrate in this study that mammalian OMA1, similar to the m-AAA protease, can cleave OPA1. The ...
This gene encodes a member of the matrix metalloproteinase family of endopeptidases that are involved in remodeling extracellular matrix during, for example, embryonic development and tumor progression. The encoded protein undergoes post-translational proteolytic processing by furin endopeptidase to form an active enzyme. Subcutaneous introduction of cells expressing the encoded protein into nude mice results in increased tumor incidence. Mice lacking the encoded protein exhibit a decreased incidence of chemically-induced tumors. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2015 ...

Adam protein (A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase Protein) is a family of peptidase proteins[1]. ADAMs are also known as the Adamalysin family. ADAMs are classified as Sheddases because they cut off or shed extracellular portions of transmembrane proteins. For example, ADAM 10 can cut off part of the HER2 receptor, activating it[2] and ADAM 17 can cut off part of the EGFR once it has bound its ligand, freeing the ligand to go and stimulate another cell[3]. Therapeutic ADAM inhibitors can potentiate anti-cancer therapy[citation needed]. It is categorized under EC 3.4.24.46. Types include: ...

The processing mechanism and gelatinolytic activity of the membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 1 (MT-MMP-1) were examined by expressing in COS-1 cells a deletion mutant of MT-MMP-1 lacking the trans-membrane domain (delta MT1) and its site-directed mutant with a furin-resistant sequence in the propeptide domain (mutant delta MT1). delta MT1, but not mutant delta MT1, was processed to an active form and exhibited gelatinolytic activity as seen using gelatin zymography. delta MT1 isolated in a complex form with tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 2 (TIMP-2) from the stable transfectants demonstrated the NH2-terminal sequence of Ala113-IIe-Gln-Leu, indicating cleavage at one amino acid down-stream from the furin recognition sequence. The delta MT1/TIMP-2 complex formed a ternary complex with proMMP-2 through the COOH termini of TIMP-2 and proMMP-2. A human breast carcinoma cell line (MDA-MB-231 cells) also secreted MT-MMP-1 into culture media, which was purified in a complex form with TIMP-2 and
Prions are the cause of neurodegenerative disease in humans and other mammals. The structural conversion of the prion protein (PrP) from a normal cellular protein (PrPC) to a protease-resistant isoform (PrPSc) is thought to relate to Cu2+ binding to histidine residues. In this study, we focused on the membrane-type matrix metalloproteinases (MT-MMPs) such as MT1-MMP and MT3-MMP, which are expressed in the brain as PrPC-degrading proteases. We synthesized 21 prion fragment peptides. Each purified peptide was individually incubated with recombinant MT1-MMP or MT3-MMP in the presence or absence of Cu2+ and the cleavage sites determined by LC-ESI-MS analysis. Recombinant MMP-7 and human serum (HS) were also tested as control. hPrP61-90, from the octapeptide-repeat region, was cleaved by HS but not by the MMPs tested here. On the other hand, hPrP92-168 from the central region was cleaved by MT1-MMP and MT3-MMP at various sites. These cleavages were inhibited by treatment with Cu2+. The C-terminal peptides

Matrilysin (MMP-7) has been shown to be upregulated in prostatic carcinomas and can increase the invasive capacity of DU-145 cells. Because of the heterogenous nature of prostatic tumors, we examined promatrilysin expression in cocultures containing two different prostatic carcinoma cell lines, DU-145 and LNCaP. METHODS. Using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) analyses, promatrilysin expression was measured in DU-145/LNCaP cocultures and conditioned media cross-cultures. The effects of blocking IL-6 on promatrilysin expression were examined by pretreating conditioned media with IL-6 neutralizing antibody. RESULTS. A significant induction of promatrilysin ...

Membrane-type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1- MMP) localizes at the front of migrating cells and degrades the extracellular matrix barrier during cancer invasion. However, it is poorly understood how the polarized distribution of MT1-MMP at the migration front is regulated. Here, we demonstrate that MT1-MMP forms a complex with CD44H via the hemopexin-like (PEX) domain. A mutant MT1-MMP lacking the PEX domain failed to bind CD44H and did not localize at the lamellipodia. The cytoplasmic tail of CD44H, which comprises interfaces that associate with the actin cytoskeleton, was important for its localization at lamellipodia. Overexpression of a CD44H mutant lacking the cytoplasmic tail also prevented MT1-MMP from localizing at the lamellipodia. Modulation of F-actin with cytochalasin D revealed that both CD44H and MT1-MMP co-localize closely with the actin cytoskeleton, dependent on the cytoplasmic tail of CD44H. Thus, CD44H appears to act as a linker that connects MT1-MMP to the actin cytoskeleton and to
I have analysed the functions of a novel, conserved metalloprotease named Invadolysin, previously reported by the Heck laboratory to be involved in mitosis and cell migration. I carried out a second site non-complementation screen in Drosophila melanogaster to identify the interactors of Invadolysin utilizing the availability of a collection of genome-wide deficiency stocks. As a result of this screen, I identified non-stop, a ubiquitin protease, as a genetic interactor of invadolysin. I characterized similar mutant phenotypes of invadolysin and non-stop and showed that the abnormal chromosomal architecture observed in both mutants might be a result of histone ubiquitination. I also investigated the involvement of Invadolysin in Notch pathway. The Notch extracellular domain levels were normal in the invadolysin mutants, but the intracellular domain levels were greatly reduced suggesting that the Notch pathway was inactive, or compromised. The levels of the Notch ligand Delta were abnormally high ...
