Abstract: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are known to play a role in adipose tissue development, but little information is available on the role of individual proteinases. Expansion of adipose tissue is associated with an increased macrophage content. Macrophage elastase (MMP-12) has an important role in macrophage infiltration, which induces pro-inflammatory effects in adipose tissue.
