Rabbit polyclonal antibody to human Metalloproteinase inhibitor 4 (208-224): Affinity purified


Catalogue No. R-1107-100
Description The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a large family of zinc endopeptidases that degrade extracellular matrix components such as fibronectin and collagen type III. The tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase (TIMPs) complex with these matrix metalloproteinases and irreversibly inactivate them. The TIMP proteins are homologous and are either secreted in soluble form (TIMP1, TIMP2 and TIMP4) or bind to extracellular matrix components (TIMP3). Metalloproteinase inhibitor 4 (TIMP4) is known to inhibit MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7 and MMP-9.
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 100 ug
Antigen A synthetic peptide (YRGHLPLRKEFVDIVQP) corresponding to a region (208-224) from the C-terminus of human Metalloproteinase inhibitor 4. To enhance the immunological response, this peptide was coupled to carrier protein BSA.
Other Names Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 4; TIMP-4; TIMP4;
Accession Q99727 TIMP4_HUMAN;
Produced in Rabbit
Purity Affinity purified on antigen column
Applications Western Blotting (WB). A concentration of 0.1-0.5 ug/mL is recommended for WB. Human TIMP4 (precursor) has a predicted length of 224 residues and MW of 26 kDa. A concentration of 0.5-1.0 ug/mL is recommended to detect the protein in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissues. Heat mediated antigen retrieval is recommended. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specificity The specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB and IHC against the antigen.
Cross-reactivity Human; rat; expected to react with mouse due to sequence homology;
Form Liquid (0.5ml) in 50% glycerol, 0.9mg NaCl and 0.2mg Na2HPO4
Reconstitution The liquid formulation should be diluted in PBS (pH 7.4)
Storage After reconstitution, aliquot and store at -20C for a higher stability. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months after purchase
