Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 µg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in 1X PBS.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Metalloproteinase inhibitor 2
Metalloproteinase inhibitor 2 precursor
TIMP metallopeptidase inhibitor 2
Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinase 2
Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 2
Complexes with metalloproteinases (such as collagenases) and irreversibly inactivates them by binding to their catalytic zinc cofactor. Known to act on MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, MMP-8, MMP-9, MMP-10, MMP-13, MMP-14, MMP-15, MMP-16 and MMP-19.
Belongs to the protease inhibitor I35 (TIMP) family. Contains 1 NTR domain.
The activity of TIMP2 is dependent on the presence of disulfide bonds.
