*Why there is no wash buffer? Our Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Diluent contains the detergent (TWEEN) normally present in other companies' ELISA kits. This saves you the step of having to wash with the special wash buffer and achieve similar or better signal to noise ratio. The wash can use regular wash buffers (PBS, TBS etc.) commonly found in labs.

Materials Required But Not Provided

  • Microplate reader in standard size.
  • Automated plate washer.
  • Adjustable pipettes and pipette tips. Multichannel pipettes are recommended in the condition of large amount of samples in the detection.
  • Clean tubes and Eppendorf tubes.
  • Washing buffer (neutral PBS or TBS).
  • Preparation of 0.01M TBS: Add 1.2g Tris, 8.5g NaCl; 450μl of purified acetic acid or 700μl of concentrated hydrochloric acid to 1000ml H2
  • Preparation of 0.01 M PBS: Add 8.5g sodium chloride, 1.4g Na O and adjust pH to 7.2-7.

Ontology

Protein Function Metalloproteinase inhibitor that functions by forming one to one complexes with target metalloproteinases, such as collagenases, and irreversibly inactivates them by binding to their catalytic zinc cofactor. Acts on MMP1, MMP2, MMP3, MMP7, MMP8, MMP9, MMP10, MMP11, MMP12, MMP13 and MMP16. Does not act on MMP14. Also functions as a growth factor that regulates cell differentiation, migration and cell death and activates cellular signaling cascades via CD63 and ITGB1. Plays a role in integrin signaling. Mediates erythropoiesis in vitro; but, unlike IL3, it is species-specific, stimulating the growth and differentiation of only human and murine erythroid progenitors. .

Background 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.
