Matrix metalloproteinases 2 and 9 reduce epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) activity at pleural mesothelium

  The aim of the study was to investigate if Matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2) and Matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9) influence epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) current. Pleural membranes from sheep were mounted at Ussing chambers and were voltage-clamped. MMP2 and MMP9 were applied apically to the pleural membranes and amiloride was added to all experiments. All values are expressed as mean ± standard...
