ⓘ TIMP4

Metalloproteinase inhibitor 4 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the TIMP4 gene.

This gene belongs to the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases gene family. Proteins encoded by this gene family are inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases, a group of peptidases involved in degradation of extracellular matrix. The secreted, netrin domain-containing protein encoded by this gene participates in the regulation of platelet aggregation and recruitment and may play role in hormonal regulation and endometrial tissue remodeling.
