  • Product overview

    Abcam’s TIMP1 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human TIMP1 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human 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-Human 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.

  • 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
    The activity of TIMP1 is dependent on the presence of disulfide bonds.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

Thank you for contacting us.

You are correct!, this kit comes with 12 strips of 8 wells.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for your email. I am sorry for the delay while I was in contact with lab.

The volume of HRP-Streptavidin is very small and therefore would be difficult to see with the naked eye. The HRP-streptavidin volume sent was 8ul and is very ...

Thank you for your inquiry and for forwarding your testing data. There are a few things I noticed after looking at the data: 1) The first thing I noticed was the background is quite high, ~0.5 OD. This high background is really reducing the dynamic ran...

Thank you for contacting us. This kit ab100651 will detect free TIMP-1, both pro and active form (thus, total) however it is not known whether it will also detect the bound form (i.e. TIMP-MMP complexes).   I hope this information is helpful to you...
