Purified recombinant fragment of human MMP9 expressed in E. Coli.
Detected in neutrophils (at protein level) (PubMed:7683678). Produced by normal alveolar macrophages and granulocytes.
PTMs - P14780 As Substrate
May play an essential role in local proteolysis of the extracellular matrix and in leukocyte migration. Could play a role in bone osteoclastic resorption. Cleaves KiSS1 at a Gly-|-Leu bond. Cleaves type IV and type V collagen into large C-terminal three quarter fragments and shorter N-terminal one quarter fragments. Degrades fibronectin but not laminin or Pz-peptide.
Processing of the precursor yields different active forms of 64, 67 and 82 kDa. Sequentially processing by MMP3 yields the 82 kDa matrix metalloproteinase-9.
N- and O-glycosylated.

Detected in neutrophils (at protein level). Produced by normal alveolar macrophages and granulocytes.
Exists as monomer or homodimer; disulfide-linked. Exists also as heterodimer with LCN2. Macrophages and transformed cell lines produce only the monomeric form. Interacts with ECM1.
(Microbial infection) Interacts with Staphylococcus aureus protein SSL5; this interaction inhibits MMP9 activity.
The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.
