Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IH
TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 are inhibitory enzymes of matrix metalloproteinase family, and are thought to be of great importance in the maintenance of connective tissue integrity. TIMP-2 shows the highest binding affinity to both the latent (pro) and active forms of 72kD Type IV collagenase (also known as MMP-2 or gelatinase A). It also has affinity for the active form of 92kD Type IV collagenase (also known as MMP-9 or gelatinase B). TIMP-2 inhibits the proteolytic invasiveness of tumor cells and normal placental trophoblast cells. TIMP2 may be used to evaluate the invasive nature of some tumor types and determine the tissue disatribution of TIMPs in other tumors such as adenomas and also in normal tissue.
Catalog #T5585-10AX
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Not suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 1-2ug/ml for 2hrs at RT
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/paraffin): 1:200 for 20 minutes at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
