MMP20 [ENSP00000260228]
 
matrix metallopeptidase 20; Degrades amelogenin, the major protein component of the enamel matrix and two of the macromolecules characterizing the cartilage extracellular matrix: aggrecan and the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP). May play a central role in tooth enamel formation
TIMP1 [ENSP00000218388]
 
TIMP metallopeptidase inhibitor 1; Complexes with metalloproteinases (such as collagenases) and irreversibly inactivates them. Also mediates erythropoiesis in vitro; but, unlike IL-3, it is species-specific, stimulating the growth and differentiation of only human and murine erythroid progenitors. Known to act on MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, MMP-8, MMP-9, MMP-10, MMP-11, MMP-12, MMP-13 and MMP-16. Does not act on MMP-14
