Catalog Number : 500-P280
Produced from sera of rabbits pre-immunized with highly pure (>98%) recombinant hTIMP-1 (human Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinases-1). Anti-Human TIMP-1 specific antibody was purified by affinity chromatography employing immobilized hTIMP-1 matrix.

Anti-Human TIMP-1 (BioGems Catalog #410-01)
This antibody stained formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of human breast invasive ductal carcinoma. The recommended concentration is 0.1µg/ml with an overnight incubation at 4°C. An HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with a DAB chromogen. Optimal results were achieved with a proteinase K antigen retrieval. Optimal concentrations and conditions may vary.
To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of Human TIMP-1 (3.0 μg/ml), a concentration of 5.0 μg/ml of this antibody is required.
To detect hTIMP-1 by sandwich ELISA (using 100μl/well antibody solution) a concentration of 0.5 - 2.0 μg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with BioGems' Biotinylated Anti-Human TIMP-1 (60-319BT) as a detection antibody, allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant hTIMP-1.
To detect hTIMP-1 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 μg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hTIMP-1 is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
