Background of TIMP-1

The tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 (TIMP1) is also called erythroid-potentiating activity (EPA). The X-linked gene for human TIMP1 is expressed in some but not all inactive X-containing somatic-cell hybrids, suggesting that this gene is either prone to reactivation or variable in its inactivation. Purified EPA specifically stimulates human and murine cells of the erythroid lineage, unlike murine interleukin-3 (IL-3) which stimulates precursor cells from all haematopoietic lineages. TIMP1 is thought to play a regulatory role in connective tissues by forming inactive complexes with those metalloproteinases that are normally responsible for connective tissue turnover. The human gene encoding TIMP has been mapped to the X chromosome in the region Xp11.1-p11.4. The standard product used in this kit is natural TIMP-1 with the molecular mass of 22KDa.

Q: how long can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for quantification TIMP-1 using the EK0520 Human TIMP-1 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-11-12

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not assess sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may alter the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample immediately after collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples in order to prevent protein degradation.

Question

Q: Can TIMP-1 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-14

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not suitable for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is required. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been evaluated by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please see the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for TIMP-1 ELISA kit? I used your TIMP-1 ELISA on serum samples. For my positive control, I received an O.D. value of 0.826, while my negative control received a value of 0.136. I obtained both of these controls from the ELISA kit, where your kit's typical data shows O.D. values much higher than my positive control and your background is lower. My samples O.D. values are around 0.225 and the highest is only 0.357. can I consider these samples contain TIMP-1 even though the O.D. values are not very high?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-07-12

Answer

A: The absolute O.D. values may change according to incubation time. The more you incubate the higher the O.D. values are going to be. a point of focus should be is whether your sample O.D. values are statistically significantly higher than your blank values. in the example mentioned, you could extend your development time in the substrate incubation step to obtain higher O.D. values, as long as your negative controls' O.D. values are not increasing faster in proportion to your positive controls. normally, a sample with O.D. value 2 standard deviations higher than your negative controls can be considered positive. We calculate the sensitivity of this ELISA kit by changeing cutoff O.D. value, calculated as the average of 20 negative controls plus 2 standard deviations of the 20 negative controls, into a concentration. in other words, when we claim this TIMP-1 ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 5pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of TIMP-1 that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 5pg/ml.

Question

Q: is it okay to use citrate plasma as samples in Human TIMP-1 Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK0520)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-06-08

Answer

A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can irreversibly bind metal ions from the functional domain of TIMP-1 causing degradation of its protein structure. TIMP-1 may be denatured as a result and may compromise the assay's measurements. The chilating sites could also be too close to the epitopes required for detection and block the antigen antibody reaction. We have tested the TIMP-1 ELISA, treating samples with a number of anticoagulants and decided that heparin or EDTA can be used for treatment of blood/plasma samples. Do not use other anticoagulents when collecting samples.

Asked: 2016-09-29

Answer

A: although the vials are bottled using aseptic techniques, heat-treated vials, and sterile stock solutions, they are not considered or guaranteed to be sterile. If sterile material is required for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.

Question

Q: which procedure should I follow in order to thaw whole blood sample for TIMP-1 ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2015-08-24

Answer

A: we do not recommend freezing and thaw whole blood. erythrocytes are fragile and, if frozen and thawed, will undergo hemolysis rendering the samples useless. To keep your blood samples to test TIMP-1 for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and separate the serum to freeze for later analysis.

Question

Q: how are cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2015-05-17

Answer

A: in those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate can be found in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer may impact immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.
