TIMP‑1 in Human Astrocytoma. TIMP‑1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human astrocytoma using Human TIMP‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB970) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

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-1 is a glycoprotein with a molecular mass of 28 kDa produced by a wide range of cell types. TIMP-1 inhibits active MMP-mediated proteolysis by forming an N-terminal, non-covalent binary complex with the MMP active site. TIMP-1 also associates C-terminally with Pro-MMP-9 in a complex which may play a role in regulating activation. Independent of MMPs, TIMP-1 has been shown to have a role in tissue homeostasis.
