|Title:||Evaluation Of Matrix Metalloproteinases -2 And -9 In Cats Under Bone Demineralization Secondary To Induced Thyrotoxicosis [avaliação Das Metaloproteinases De Matriz -2 E -9 Em Gatos Com Desmineralização óssea Secundária à Tirotoxicose Induzida]|

|Abstract:||Significant increase of activity of active forms of matrix metalloproteinases -2 and -9 in cats under induced thyrotoxicosis and bone demineralization was observed. Pro and intermediated forms of matrix metalloproteinases -2 and -9 increased at 14 days of hormonal treatment, followed by decrease tendency. A negative correlation between active forms of matrix metalloproteinases -2 and -9 and bone mineral density of radius distal extremity was also observed. The results suggest an increase of collagen matrix degradation secondary to high levels of thyroid hormones. © 2008 Escola de Veterinária UFMG.|
