ANGPT1

A gene on chromosome 8q23.1 that encodes angiopoietin 1, a secreted glycoprotein which, like other angiopoietins, binds to endothelial cell-specific tyrosine-protein kinase receptor. It plays a key role in mediating interactions between the endothelium and surrounding matrix and mesenchyme, andit  inhibits endothelial permeability. Angiopoietin 1 plays a role in regulating angiogenesis; endothelial cell survival, proliferation, migration, adhesion and spreading; reorganisation of the actin cytoskeleton; and maintains vascular quiescence. It contributes to blood vessel maturation and stability and may be involved in cardiac embryogenesis.

Three significant SNPs on GGA2 were found to associate with dry matter content in breast and were located in the vicinity of or within angiopoietin 1 (ANGPT1).
Trebananib (formally known as AMG 386; Amgen) is a first-in-class peptide-Fc fusion protein (or peptibody) that targets angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels into cancerous tumors) by inhibiting the binding of both angiopoietin 1 and 2 to the Tie2 receptor.

Colon cancer cells treated with grape seed proanthocyanidins in the laboratory showed inhibition of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and angiopoietin 1 (Ang1), thereby blocking blood supply to tumor cells.
These include VEGF, fibroblast growth factor (FGF)2, PDGF, hepotocyte growth factor (HGF), PIGF, cyclooxygenase-2 and angiopoietin 1.
Simultaneous inhibition of VEGFR, FGFR, the angiopoietin 1 receptor (Tie2), and PDGF by AP24534 is expected to provide more potent inhibition of angiogenesis that is less prone to resistance than blocking VEGF alone.
