Interstitial collagenase (MMP-1)

Target (abbrv.) MMP-1
Target (full name) Interstitial collagenase
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL000521 (4924-32_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol MMP1
UniProt ID P03956
UniProt Comment
  • Cleaves collagens of types I, II, and III at one site in the helical domain. Also cleaves collagens of types VII and X. In case of HIV infection, interacts and cleaves the secreted viral Tat protein, leading to a decrease in neuronal Tat's mediated neurotoxicity.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs484915) and 1 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
