CLIP-170 and Restin, microtubule-binding proteins originally cloned from human cells, are identical except for a stretch of 35 amino acids present in Restin, but missing from CLIP-170. Here we present the discovery of two novel isoforms of the CLIP-170/Restin gene in both chickens and humans. One...
Bone resorption in mice involves the degradation of extracellular matrix. Whereas several proteases seem to be implicated in this process, it becomes increasingly clear that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), amongst them especially MMP-13 and MMP-3, play an essential role. We have purified MMP-13...
