Matrix Metalloproteinase 23 (MMP21, MMP22, MIFR2, CAMMP) was first described in tumor cells. MMP23 shares much of the same domain structure as the classical MMPs, but has a unique cysteine array. The cysteine switch that is found in the classical MMPs is lacking or has a different sequence in MMP23. MMP23 has a furin cleavage site and it is thought to be localized within the cell. MMP23 has been reported as splice variants with different truncations at its C-terminus. MMP23 is predominantly expressed in ovary, testis, and prostate indicating that it plays a specialized role in reproductive processes. The human MMP23 gene has the chromosomal location of 1p36.3. The chromosome 1 location is a unique position among all the MMP genes currently mapped.
