MA1-774 contains 100 µg of in vitro produced, protein A purified antibody (1 mg/mL) in PBS containing 1 mg/mL BSA and 0.05% sodium azide.
MA1-774 detects TIMP-2 from mouse samples.
MA1-774 has been successfully used in Western blot, IF and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot, MA1-774 detects a ~18-24 kDa band representing TIMP-2 from mouse platelets. It is recommended to block with 3% BSA.
The MA1-774 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues D(56) S G N D I Y G N P I(66) of mouse TIMP-2. This sequence is 100% conserved in human, rat, rabbit, chicken, and bovine TIMP-2
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 72 kDa Type IV collagenase (also known as MMP-2 or gelatinase A). It also has affinity for the active form of 92 kDa 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.
