MMP-9 or 92-kDa Type IV Collagenase or gelatinase B is a peptidase enzyme ?of Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP?s) family, it ?has a significant role in extracellular matrix component degradation during regular physiological phenomenon, such as reproduction, embryonic development, tissue remodeling and disease processes. MMP-9 is secreted as a pro-enzyme of 92-kDa by macrophages, neutrophils, mast cells and stromal cells and activated in inflammaroty tissues then released into the extracellular environment. MMP-9 expression levels in a variety of cancer types, including breast, colon, gastric and nasopharyngeal cancers are elevated compared with the corresponding normal tissues
