Nonetheless, several animal and in vitro evidence connected both MMPs to IL-18 [24] and to the IL-17/IL-23 axis [25], demonstrating a general stimulating effect on the enzymes production, whereas other reports suggested a regulation of MMP-2 on MCP-3 activity [26] showing an anti-inflammatory effect [27].
The observations and mechanistic insight are highly novel and demonstrate a significant shift in the MMP activity paradigm in physiological and pathological processes.
