STRING 9.05 
MMP9 [ENSP00000361405]
 
matrix metallopeptidase 9 (gelatinase B, 92kDa gelatinase, 92kDa type IV collagenase); 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
COL1A2 [ENSP00000297268]
 
collagen, type I, alpha 2; Type I collagen is a member of group I collagen (fibrillar forming collagen)
