LEAF™ purified anti-mouse TIMP-1 (Poly5101) (purple squares) increased the activity of recombinant mouse MMP-9 (Cat. No. 755204) in a dose-dependent manner which was inhibited in the presence of recombinant mouse TIMP-1 at 0.42 µg/mL (Cat. No. 593702), whereas the LEAF™ purified goat IgG isotype control (gray triangles) does not have the effect. ND50 range: 2 – 10 µg/mL

    Whole cell extracts (15 µg total protein) from A20, HeLa cells spiked with and without the indicated amount of recombinant mouse TIMP-1 protein (Cat. No. 593702), and NIH/3T3 were resolved by 4-12% Bis-Tris gel electrophoresis, transferred to a PVDF membrane, and probed with 1.0 µg/mL LEAF™ anti-mouse TIMP-1 (clone Poly5101) for 2 hours at room temperature. Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using HRP donkey anti-goat. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-GAPDH antibody (Cat. No. 607904) was used as a loading control at a 1:50000 dilution.

TIMPs (tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases) are endogenous inhibitors for MMPs (matrix metalloproteinases). The TIMPs consist of structurally and functionally distinct N- and C-terminal domains, each of which is stabilized by three disulfide bonds. The N-terminal domain binds to the active site of MMPs, inhibiting their proteolytic activities. The bidentate coordination of the zinc ion in the active site of an MMP by the N-terminal α-amino group and carbonyl group of the Cys residue in the "cysteine switch" is a key mechanism of inhibition with MMPs. The TIMP's C-terminal domain is known to bind hemopexin-like domain of pro-MMPs. TIMPs are broad-spectrum inhibitors of MMPs, but there are some differences in specificity among them. Mouse metalloproteinase inhibitor 1, TIMP-1, is more restricted in its inhibitory range than the other three TIMPs, having a relatively low affinity for the membrane-type MMPs, MMP-14, MMP-16, and MMP-24 as well as for MMP-19. Mouse TIMP-1 shares a 72% homology with its human counterpart. It is widely expressed in many mammalian tissues, notably in the reproductive organs. TIMP-1 is able to promote cell proliferation in a wide range of cell types and may also have an anti-apoptotic function. It has anti-angiogenic activity by preventing endothelial cell migration. CD63 has been identified as a receptor for TIMP-1. TIMP-1 binding to CD63 inhibits apoptosis and arrests cell growth. TIMP-1-null mice exhibit a number of alterations in processes associated with reproduction, steroidogenesis and impaired learning and memory. In addition, mice deficient in TIMP-1 exhibit enhanced MMP activity that would contribute to a reduction of atherosclerotic plaque size; nevertheless, it promotes aneurysm formation.

Related FAQs

Do you guarantee that your antibodies are totally pathogen free?

BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house aside from the GoInVivo™ product line. However, upon request, this can be tested on a custom basis with an outside, independent laboratory.

Does BioLegend test each Ultra-LEAF™ antibody by functional assay?

No, BioLegend does not test Ultra-LEAF™ antibodies by functional assays unless otherwise indicated. Due to the possible complexities and variations of uses of biofunctional antibodies in different assays and because of the large product portfolio, BioLegend does not currently perform functional assays as a routine QC for the antibodies. However, we do provide references in which the antibodies were used for functional assays and we do perform QC to verify the specificity and quality of the antibody based on our strict specification criteria.

Does BioLegend test each Ultra-LEAF™ antibody for potential pathogens?

No, BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house unless otherwise indicated.  However, we can recommend an outside vendor to perform this testing as needed.

Have you tested this Ultra-LEAF™ antibody for in vivo or in vitro applications?

We don't test our antibodies for in vivo or in vitro applications unless otherwise indicated. Depending on the product, the TDS may describe literature supporting usage of a particular product for bioassay. It may be best to further consult the literature to find clone specific information.
