TIMP‑4 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. TIMP-4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using 25 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human TIMP-4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB974) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: TIMP-4

TIMP-4 is a secreted protein that inhibits most MMPs by forming a noncovalent complex with the MMP active site. It is highly expressed in brain, heart, ovary, and skeletal muscle.
