Species reactivityReacts with: Human
The Antibody Pair can be used to quantify Human TIMP2. BSA and Azide free antibody pairs include unconjugated capture and detector antibodies suitable for sandwich ELISAs. The antibodies are provided at an approximate concentration of 1 mg/ml as measured by the protein A280 method. The recommended antibody orientation is based on internal optimization for ELISA-based assays. Antibody orientation is assay dependent and needs to be optimized for each assay type. Both capture and detector antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies delivering consistent, specific, and sensitive results.
For additional information on the performance of the antibody pair, see the equivalent SimpleStep ELISA® Kit (ab188395), which uses the same antibodies. Please note that the range provided for the pairs is only an estimation based on the performance of the related product using the same antibody pair. Performance of the antibody pair will depend on the specific characteristics of your assay. We guarantee the product works in sandwich ELISA, but we do not guarantee the sensitivity or dynamic range of the antibody pair in your assay.

RelevanceMatrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of enzymes that are responsible for the degradation of extracellular matrix components such as collagen, laminin and proteoglycans. These enzymes are involved in normal physiological processes such as embryogenesis and tissue remodeling and may play an important role in arthritis, periodontitis, and metastasis. The activation and activity of MMPs are regulated by a family of endogenous inhibitors, tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase (TIMP). TIMP2 (also called CSC-21K) is a 24 kDa glycoprotein that is expressed by a variety of cell types. It forms a non covalent, stoichiometric complex with both latent and active MMPs. TIMP2 shows a preference for MMP2. TIMPs are capable of altering the metastatic potential of cancer cells and have been shown to inhibit invasion and metastasis in animal models. TIMP2 is constitutively produced in low (pg/ml) levels by most cell types in tissue culture. The low protein levels produced often require concentration of cell culture media to visualize the bands by Western Blotting.
