Human TIMP-2 Quantikine ELISA Kit Summary

The Quantikine Human TIMP-2 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure TIMP-2 levels in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and saliva. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human TIMP-2, and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Natural human TIMP-2 showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant... Quantikine kit standards, indicating that this kit can be used to determine relative levels of natural human TIMP-2.

TIMPs-1 through -4 regulate the activity of zinc metalloproteases known as MMPs, ADAMs and ADAMTSs. Structurally, TIMPs contain two domains. The N-terminal domain binds to the active site of mature metalloproteases via a 1:1 non-covalent interaction, blocking access of substrates to the catalytic site. In addition, The C-terminal domain of TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 binds to the hemopexin- like domain of pro-MMP-9 and pro-MMP-2, respectively. The latter binding is essential for the cell surface activation of MMP-2 by MMP-14.
