Mouse anti Human Tissue Inhibitor of Matrix Metalloproteinase 2 (TIMP2)Catalog number: X2061M
TIMP-1, TIMP-2, TIMP-3 and TIMP-4 (for tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1, -2, -3 and -4) complex with metalloproteinases such as collagenases,gelatinases and stromelysins, resulting in irreversible inactivation of the metalloproteinase. TIMP-1 was found to be identical to EPA (erythroidpotentiation activity). Parathyroid hormone has been shown to be a regulator of TIMP-2 in osteoblastic cells. TIMP-3 may be involved in regulating trophoblastic invasion of the uterus as well as in regulating remodeling of the extracellular matrix during the folding of epithelia, and in the formation,branching and expansion of epithelial tubes. TIMP-4 is most highly expressed in heart and low levels of TIMP-4 are expressed in liver, brain, lung, thymus and spleen.
Synonyms: CSC-21K; Metalloproteinase Inhibitor 2 precursor
Immunogen: Hybridoma produced by the fusion of splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with a synthetic peptide derived from the human TIMP-2 protein and mouse myeloma Ag8563 cells. Sequence common in mouse, rabbit, chicken, zebrafish and pig.
Product Form: Unconjugated
Formulation: Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide
Purification Method: Protein A/G Chromatography
Concentration: See vial for concentration
Antibody can be used for ELISA, Western blotting (1-2 µg/ml) and immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues (1-5 µg/ml). Optimal concentration should be evaluated by serial dilutions.
Functional Analysis: Western Blotting
Positive Control: Colon and gastric tissues. Stronger expression observed in tumor versus normal protein.
Product should be stored at -20ºC. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles
