Tissue Inhibitor of MetalloProteinases-1 (TIMP-1, EPPA, EPO, HCI, CLGI, TIMP) is a glycoprotein and a natural inhibitor of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs and ADAMs). It is able to promote cell proliferation in a wide range of cell types, and may also have an anti-apoptotic function. Transcription of this gene is highly inducible in response to many cytokines and hormones and is important in prenatal development. TIMP-1 is widely present in many tissues and cell types. Overexpression of TIMP-1 correlates with aggressive pathogenesis of a variety of tumors. It has also been shown that total TIMP-1 plasma levels can be related to cardiovascular risk factors influencing cardiovascular remodeling via extracellular matrix degradation.
