25973093 In conclusion, MT2-MMP is involved in gastric cancer invasion and metastasis and may serve as an independent prognostic factor for gastric cancer patients.
25031779 our data suggest that MT2-MMP expression positively involves in non-small cell lung cancer and might play an important role in promoting the tumor progression and intra-tumoral angiogenesis
23228395 HLA-G expression involved in tumor invasiveness or metastasis may rely on the NK cytotoxicity inhibition and induction of MMP-15 expression in ovarian cancer.
22768148 MMP-15 is up-regulated in preeclampsia, but does not cleave endoglin to produce soluble endoglin.
22576687 MMP-15 and MMP-19 are upregulated during colorectal tumorigenesis
21751260 Data show that MT2-MMP was a novel hypoxia-responsive gene and was upregulated by HIF-1alpha under hypoxia.
21036765 The intensity of immunochemical staining of MT2-MMP was significantly positively correlated to the intratumoral angiogenesis of esophageal cancer tissues.

20452482 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20117087 These results indicate MT2-MMP might be involved in the cancer progression more than or equal to MT1-MMP independently of MMP-2 and MT1-MMP.
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17029196 Data show that MMP15 may be relevant with carcinogenesis, development and metastasis of adenoid cystic carcinoma, and different metastasis potential may result from different subtype of MMPs gene family.
16983145 Type-2 metalloproteinases, are identified as the triggering agents that independently confer cancer cells with the ability to proteolytically efface the BM scaffolding, initiate the assembly of invasive pseudopodia, and propagate transmigration.
16825197 Data show that the MT2-MMP catalytic domain has a higher propensity than that of MT1-MMP to initiate cleavage of the MMP-2 prodomain in the absence of TIMP-2.
12661033 down-regulation of most MT-MMPs is typical for prostate carcinoma; seems to occur mainly in epithelial cells
