EC 3.4.24.34     
Accepted name: neutrophil collagenase
Reaction: Cleavage of interstitial collagens in the triple helical domain. Unlike EC 3.4.24.7, interstitial collagenase, this enzyme cleaves type III collagen more slowly than type I
Other name(s): matrix metalloproteinase 8; PMNL collagenase; MMP-8
Comments: Similar to interstitial collagenase in specificity, but the product of a different gene and highly glycosylated. Stored in the specific granules of neutrophil leukocytes. In peptidase family M10 (interstitial collagenase family). Formerly included in EC 3.4.24.7
