- Suitable for: SDS-PAGE, Functional Studies
Product nameRecombinant human TIMP2 protein
See all TIMP2 proteins and peptides
TIMP2 activity was measured by its ability to inhibit human MMP1 induced hydrolysis of a chromogenic peptide substrate at room temperature. Half maximal inhibition was obtained at a TIMP2 concentration of approximately 0.5 µg/ml, when using an MMP1 concentration of 1.6 µg/ml.
Purity> 95 % SDS-PAGE.
Purity is greater than 95% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses. Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per µg (1EU/µg).

- CSC 21K
FunctionComplexes 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.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protease inhibitor I35 (TIMP) family.
Contains 1 NTR domain.
modificationsThe activity of TIMP2 is dependent on the presence of disulfide bonds.
