|Description||TIMP1 is an extracellular inhibitor of MMPs (see above) including MMP1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 16. It belongs to the I35 (TIMP) family of irreversible protease inhibitors that function as key modulators of extracellular matrix degradation during tissue development and remodeling. TIMP1 can also act through an MMP-independent mechanism to promote erythropoiesis by stimulating proliferation and differentiation of erythroid progenitors. Recombinant human TIMP-1 is a 20.6 kDa protein containing 184 amino acid residues.|
|BiologicalActivity||TIMP1 activity was measured by its ability to inhibit human MMP-1 induced hydrolysis of a chromogenic peptide substrate at room temperature. Half maximal inhibition was obtained at a TIMP-1 concentration of approximately 0.5 μg/ml, when using an MMP-1 concentration of 1.6 μg/ml.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human TIMP-1 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
