Human/Mouse TIMP-2 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human, Mouse
Detects human and mouse TIMP‑2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, less than 2% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human TIMP-4 is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Chinese hamster ovary cell line CHO-derived recombinant human TIMP‑2
Accession # P16035
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
See below
5-15 µg/mL
See below
Measured by its ability to neutralize Recombinant Human TIMP-2 (0.143 µg/mL, Catalog # 971-TM) inhibition of Recombinant Human MMP‑2 (0.2 µg/mL, Catalog # 902-MPN or 902-MP) cleavage of the fluorogenic peptide substrate Mca‑PLGL‑Dpa‑AR‑NH2 (10 µM, Catalog # ES001). The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2.6 µg/mL.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human TIMP‑2 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human TIMP‑2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows Recombinant Human TIMP-2 Western Blot Standard Protein (Catalog # WBC023) and lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line and human placenta tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse TIMP-2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF971) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for TIMP-2 at approximately 22 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunohistochemistry TIMP‑2 in Human Ovarian Cancer Tissue. View Larger

TIMP‑2 in Human Ovarian Cancer Tissue. TIMP-2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human ovarian cancer tissue using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human/Mouse TIMP-2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF971) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counter-stained with hematoxylin (blue).

Neutralization Neutralization of TIMP‑2 Activity by Human TIMP‑2 Antibody. View Larger

Neutralization of TIMP‑2 Activity by Human TIMP‑2 Antibody. Recombinant Human MMP-2 (0.2 µg/mL, Catalog # 902-MPNor 902-MP) activity is measured in the presence of Recombinant Human/Mouse TIMP-2 (0.143 µg/mL, Catalog # 971-TM) that has been preincubated with increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human TIMP-2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF971). The ND50is typically 2.6 µg/mL.

Background: TIMP-2

Tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases or TIMPs are a family of proteins that regulate the activation and proteolytic activity of the zinc enzymes known as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). There are four members of the family, TIMP-1, TIMP-2, TIMP-3, and TIMP-4. TIMP-2 is a non N-glycosylated protein with a molecular mass of 22 kDa produced by a wide range of cell types, which inhibits MMPs non-covalently by the formation of binary complexes. TIMP-2 also has erythroid-potentiating and cell growth promoting activities.
