Target

  • Function
    Can degrade fibrillar type I, II, and III collagens.
  • Tissue specificity
    Neutrophils.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase M10A family.
    Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
  • Domain
    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.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasmic granule. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Stored in intracellular granules.
