Stromelysin-3 (ST3) belongs to the metalloproteinase family [1]. Matrix metalloproteinases are mediators of tissue remodelling which play a role in various processes such as development, tissue repair and tumour progression [2, 3]. These molecules are capable of degrading most macromolecular components of the extracellular matrix. Nevertheless, no structural substrate in the extracellular matrix has been identified for ST3 [4]. It has been [...]
