    Optimal level activity of matrix metalloproteinases is critical for adult visual plasticity in the healthy and stroke-affected brain

    Justyna Pielecka-Fortuna et al.
    Matrix metalloproteinases play a crucial role in adult visual plasticity in the brains of healthy and stroke-affected mice and their activity has to be within a narrow window for experience-induced plasticity to occur.

    Matrix metalloproteinase 1 modulates invasive behavior of tracheal branches during entry into Drosophila flight muscles

    Julia Sauerwald et al.
    Tracheal-derived matrix metalloproteinase 1 activity sustains tracheal branch invasion into myotubes by modulating ECM properties and dynamic behavior of sprouting tip cells.

    Neuronal octopamine signaling regulates mating-induced germline stem cell increase in female Drosophila melanogaster

    Yuto Yoshinari et al.
    Genetic analyses using the fruit fly illustrate how neuronal system couples germline stem cell increase to an external cue, which is mating, through stem cell niche signaling.

    Matrix metalloproteinase 14 is required for fibrous tissue expansion

    Susan H Taylor et al.
    The membrane type I-matrix metalloproteinase is essential for the release of collagen fibrils from plasma membrane fibripositors, which is required for the transition from embryonic to postnatal tendon development.

    A novel Drosophila injury model reveals severed axons are cleared through a Draper/MMP-1 signaling cascade

    Maria D Purice et al.
    An unbiased transcriptional profiling screen reveals the secreted matrix metalloproteinase MMP-1 is a transcriptional target of the ensheathing glial receptor Draper following acute axon injury in adult Drosophila.

    Site-directed MT1-MMP trafficking and surface insertion regulate AChR clustering and remodeling at developing NMJs

    Zora Chui-Kuen Chan et al.
    Postsynaptic MT1-MMP serves as a molecular switch to synaptogenesis by clearing the surrounding ECM environment that allows effective deposition of nerve-derived synaptogenic factors to induce postsynaptic differentiation at developing NMJs.

    Homeostatic regulation of perisynaptic matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9) activity in the amblyopic visual cortex

    Sachiko Murase et al.
    Dark exposure lowers the MMP9 activation threshold, and subsequent light stimulation to an amblyopic eye is sufficient to induce proteolysis at thalamo-cortical synapses in deprived mouse visual cortex.

    The zinc-finger transcription factor Hindsight regulates ovulation competency of Drosophila follicles

    Lylah D Deady et al.
    Hindsight/RREB-1 plays a conserved role in follicle maturation and ovulation by sequential upregulation of matrix metalloproteinase and adrenergic receptor in follicle cells.

    Systematic substrate identification indicates a central role for the metalloprotease ADAM10 in axon targeting and synapse function

    Peer-Hendrik Kuhn et al.
    The metalloprotease ADAM10 modulates axon and synapse function by cleaving numerous synaptic and axonal membrane proteins in the central nervous system.
