TIMP2 belongs to the TIMP gene family. The proteins encoded by this gene family are natural inhibitors of the matrix metalloproteinases, a group of peptidases that take part in degradation of the extracellular matrix. Besides having an inhibitory role against metalloproteinases, the encoded protein has a exclusive part among TIMP family members in its capability to directly suppress the proliferation of endothelial cells. Consequently, the encoded protein is crucial to the conservation of tissue homeostasis by suppressing the production of quiescent tissues as an answer to angiogenic factors, and by inhibiting protease activity in tissues undergoing renovation of the extracellular matrix.
TIMP2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 194 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 21.8kDa.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
TIMP2 protein was lyophilized from a 0.2 µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4, with 3 % trehalose.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized TIMP2 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized TIMP2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution TIMP2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
