|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||25503 Da|
|Other Names||Metalloproteinase inhibitor 4, Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 4, TIMP-4, TIMP4|
|Target/Specificity||This TIMP4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 48-74 amino acids from the Central region of human TIMP4.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||TIMP4 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Complexes with metalloproteinases (such as collagenases) and irreversibly inactivates them by binding to their catalytic zinc cofactor. Known to act on MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7 and MMP- 9.|
|Tissue Location||Abundant in heart and present at low levels in many other tissues|

This gene belongs to the TIMP gene family. The proteins encoded by this gene family are inhibitors of the matrix metalloproteinases, a group of peptidases involved in degradation of the extracellular matrix. The secreted, netrin domain-containing protein encoded by this gene is involved in regulation of platelet aggregation and recruitment and may play role in hormonal regulation and endometrial tissue remodeling.
