Title:Assays for measuring matrix metalloproteinase activities
Abstract: Methods for determining matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity in biological samples are described. The methods of the invention are useful to assess disease severity or progression, diagnose a particular disease, or develop a profile of MMP activity for inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, or cancer. The methods of the invention involve the use of particular amino acid sequences in substrates to measure the activity in biological samples of MMP\'s including collagenase 3, stromelysin 1, gelatinase A, gelatinase B and collagenase 1. A diagnostic kit for use in determining the amounts of MMP activities in biological samples is also provided.
