NS0-Derived Recombinant Rat TIMP-1
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Immunoprecipitation: This antibody was used at 25 μg/mL to immunoprecipitaterrTIMP-1 from conditioned cell culture media.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Mouse Anti-Rat Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP-1) (Clone 150906) recognizes an epitope on Rat TIMP-1. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinases 1, also known as TIMP1 is a widely expressed, secreted protein that functions primarily to inhibit members of a large family of metalloproteinases (MPs). Because of the ability of TIMP-1 to inhibit MPs, it functions in many of the same pathophysiological processes as these enzymes, e.g. wound healing, ovulation, angiogenesis, and cancer cell metastasis. TIMP-1 can also stimulate proliferation and cellular anabolic processes.1 TIMP-1 is a novel negative regulator of HGF activity during liver regeneration.2 Overexpression of TIMP-1 could promote renal interstitial fibrosis through the inflammatory pathway, which might be partly induced by upregulating ICAM-1.3
