Abstract

Increased concentrations of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) in cerebrospinal fluid are part of the host response in bacterial meningitis (BM). We investigated whether the concentrations of MMP-9 and the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1 predict the outcome in childhood BM. ...read more

Extracellular Matrix Turnover

The extracellular matrix (ECM) ensures tissue integrity and play a role in cell growth, migration, and differentiation. ECM turnover, therefore, is essential for tissue maintenance. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that regulate ECM turnover.
