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 TIMP‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB97112) 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.
TIMP‑2 in Human Pancreatic Cancer Tissue.
TIMP‑2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreatic cancer tissue using Goat Anti-Human TIMP‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB97112) at 3 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

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.
