Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding residues surrounding Lys53 of human TIMP3.
TIMPs are members of the family of tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) that includes TIMP1, TIMP2, TIMP3, and TIMP4. The main function of TIMPs is their inhibitory effect on MMPs. TIMPs irreversibly inactivate MMPs by direct binding to their catalytic zinc cofactor and resultant inhibition of proteinase function (1,2). In addition to MMP inhibition, TIMPs have also been shown to interact with various membrane receptors on the cell surface. Some of these interactions include: TIMP1 with CD63, TIMP2 with α3β1 integrin, and TIMP3 with VEGFR2, all of which result in distinct cellular effects (3). TIMPs are involved in a wide variety of biological functions, such as tumor angiogenesis and progression (4,5), wound healing, and vascular remodeling (6,7). Mutations in TIMP3 are associated with Sorsby's fundus dystrophy (8,9).
