  • Product overview

    Abcam’s TIMP1 Rat ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Rat TIMP1 in cell lysates and tissue lysates.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Rat TIMP1 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and TIMP1 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Rat TIMP1 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of TIMP1 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

Properties

  • FunctionComplexes with metalloproteinases (such as collagenases) and irreversibly inactivates them by binding to their catalytic zinc cofactor. Also mediates erythropoiesis in vitro; but, unlike IL-3, it is species-specific, stimulating the growth and differentiation of only human and murine erythroid progenitors. Known to act on MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, MMP-8, MMP-9, MMP-10, MMP-11, MMP-12, MMP-13 and MMP-16. Does not act on MMP-14.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protease inhibitor I35 (TIMP) family.
    Contains 1 NTR domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The activity of TIMP1 is dependent on the presence of disulfide bonds.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
