Abstract


MMP-2 (activated) and MMP-9 like molecules which has similarity with vertebrate MMP-2 and 9 were identified in aqueous (PBS) extract of  Nasturtium flowers, matured Bambusa balcooa leaves and Nayantara flowers Aims- To search MMPs/Gelatinases like molecules from plant source. Methods- Zymography, Immunoblot, ELISA. Conclusion-The presence of activated MMP-2 and MMP-9 like molecules in plant source having similarity with vertebrate MMP-2 and MMP-9 may have academic and business potential.
