Cleaving the Asn66-Leu67 bond of MMP2 activates it sufficiently to allow autocleavage of the Asn109-Tyr110 bond (Okada et al. 1990, Strongin et al. 1993, Crabbe et al. 1994a, Atkinson et al. 1995, Sang et al. 1996). This activation is inhibited by endostatin (Nyberg et al. 2003). Residue numbering here refers to the UniProt canonical sequence.
