TIMP-2 antibody | D08-1D4
TIMP-2 is a inhibitor of matrix metalloproteases but can also interact with MT1-MMP to enable the cell-surface activation of pro-MMP-2 (Lambert et al. 2004 and Baker et al. 2002). In addition to this, studies suggest that TIMP-2 selectively inhibits the growth of endothelial cells through an MMP-independent mechanism (Murphy et al. 1993 and Moses et al. 1990).
