AIM:To investigate the relationship of the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9(MMP-9)with tumorigenesis,development and metastasis of cervical squamous carcinoma.METHODS:The expression and distribution of MMP-9 protein were detected by immunohistochemical SP method.The active protein and mRNA of MMP-9 were determined by gelatin Zymography and RT-PCR,respectively.The relationships between those indexes and the factors related to clinical pathology of cervical carcinoma were analyzed statistically.RESULTS:Immunohistochemical studies demonstrated that MMP-9 was expressed in 69.8% of squamous cell carcinomas(SCC)and 47.6% of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions(HSIL),but was less frequently expressed in low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions(LSIL)(10%).In SCC,MMP-9 protein was expressed in 78.3% of patients with lymph node metastasis,and it was significantly higher than that in non-metastasis group(63.3%,P0.05).And the expression of MMP-9 was not significantly related to the pathological grade and clinical stage.By direct analysis of enzyme activities we found that the gelatinolytic activity of MMP-9 was significantly higher in SCC and HSIL than that in LSIL(P0.01).Expression of MMP-9 mRNA was also higher in SCC and HSIL than that in LSIL.CONCLUSION:MMP-9 is related well to the initial invasion and metastasis of cervical squamous carci-noma.The positive expression of MMP-9 can be used to indicate the metastatic potential and help clinicians to make therapeutic strategies.
