|A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human TIMP2 (NP_003246.1) (Cys 27-Pro 220) was expressed with the fused Fc region of human IgG1 at the N-terminus.|
|In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.|
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
|> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant human Fc/TIMP2 is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 431 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 48 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 100mM Glycine, 10mM NaCl, 50mM Tris, pH 7.5|
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
|Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
Tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMP) family are natural inhibitors of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), the zinc enzymes involved in extracellular matrix maintenance and remodeling. The TIMP family encompasses four members (TIMP1-4), and they inhibit most MMPs by forming non-covalent binary complex. TIMP2 is a 22 kDa non N-glycosylated protein expressed by a variety of cell types, and plays a unique role among TIMP family members owing to its functions to regulate cellular responses to growth factors. Findings establish an unexpected, MMP-independent mechanism for TIMP2 inhibition of endothelial cell proliferation in vitro and reveal an important component of the antiangiogenic effect of TIMP2 in vivo. TIMP-2 thus is critical to the maintenance of tissue homeostasis and is involved in the regulation of tumor microenvironment.
