DescriptionMILLIPLEX MAP Human TIMP Magnetic Bead Panel 1 - Immunology Multiplex Assay
OverviewMILLIPLEX® MAP Human TIMP Magnetic Bead Panels enable you to explore the modulation of TIMP expression and the function of the MMP/TIMP in a variety of therapeutic areas. Human TIMP Panel 1 Magnetic Bead kit (TIMP-1, -2) is to be used for serum/plasma samples, while Human TIMP Panel 2 Magnetic Bead kit (TIMP-1, -2, -3, -4) has been designed for tissue/cell culture samples. Both panels are in a convenient “all-in-one” box format to give you the assurance that you will have all the necessary reagents you need to run your assay. Both panels are customizable, allowing you to choose the TIMPs that best fit your needs.
Background InformationTissue Inhibitors of Metalloproteinases (TIMPs) comprise a family of four inhibitors known as TIMP-1, TIMP-2, TIMP-3, and TIMP-4. Each member of the TIMP family has its own distinct profile of metalloproteinase inhibition. The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc proteases involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix (ECM) in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, tissue and bone remodeling, wound healing, tissue morphogenesis, angiogenesis, and tumor metastasis. MMPs are also known to be involved in the cleavage of cell surface receptors, the release of apoptotic ligands (such as the FAS ligand), cell proliferation, differentiation and chemokine in/activation. The normal function of MMPs must be precisely regulated by their endogenous protein inhibitors, TIMPs . TIMPs inhibit MMPs by forming 1:1, non-covalent complexes with MMPs, thereby blocking access of substrates to the MMP catalytic site. Except for inhibition of active MMPs, TIMPs also exhibit several other biochemical and physiological/biological functions such as proMMP activation, cell growth promotion, matrix binding, inhibition of angiogenesis and the induction of apoptosis. Disruption of the MMP/TIMP balance can result in serious diseases such as arthritis, cardiovascular disorders, tumor growth and metastasis.
