  • Cat.No.
  • CSC-CTK0644
  • Description
  • TIMP-1 is an extracellular inhibitor of MMPs (see above) including MMP1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 16. It belongs to the I35 (TIMP) family of irreversible protease inhibitors that function as key modulators of extracellular matrix degradation during tissue development and remodeling. TIMP1 can also act through an MMP-independent mechanism to promote erythropoiesis by stimulating proliferation and differentiation of erythroid progenitors. Recombinant human TIMP-1 is a 20.6 kDa protein containing 184 amino acid residues.
  • Species
  • Human
  • Product Overview
  • Human TIMP1 expressed in E.coli
  • Molecular Mass
  • 20.6 kDa
  • Size
  • CAT# CSC-CTK0644-10 (10 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0644-50 (50 μg)
  • Expression System
  • E.coli
  • Purity
  • Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
  • Activity
  • TIMP1 activity was measured by its ability to inhibit human MMP-1 induced hydrolysis of a chromogenic peptide substrate at room temperature. Half maximal inhibition was obtained at a TIMP-1 concentration of approximately 0.5 μg/ml, when using an MMP-1 concentration of 1.6 μg/ml.
  • Endotoxin Level
  • Less than 1 EU/μg.
  • Formulation
  • Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered solution with no additives.
  • Reconstitution
  • Please centrifuge product before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted with distilled, sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. For further dilution, carrier protein (0.1% BSA or HSA) should be added to avoid loss of bioactivity.
  • Storage & Stability
  • The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. For long-term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
