|Title:||Evaluation of matrix metalloproteinases-2 and-9 in cats under bone demineralization secondary to induced thyrotoxicosis|
|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.|
