angiopoietin

(an″jē-ō-poy-ē′tĭn; -poy′ĕ-tĭn) [ angio- + -poiet(ic) + -in]
Any of several genes (or the proteins they encode) that stimulate new blood vessel formation. The proteins encoded by angiopoietin are found in healthy cardiac endothelium and in diseased tissues such as arthritic joints and malignant tumors.

In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company accelerated the recognition of deferred revenue from the up-front payment previously received from Bayer in connection with the discontinuation of the Ang2 development program.
Regeneron (REGN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Dane Leone stating that he is optimistic that Roche's (RHHBY) coming read-out of the BOULEVARD study may show encouraging clinical results on Feb 13 to support a pivotal effort and may show VEGF + ANG2 inhibition may provide incremental benefits over VEGF therapy alone in DME and potentially wetAMD.
The APACHE2 score had a low AUC for the prediction of ARDS, and the APACHE2 score in combination with LIPS or ANG2 level also failed to increase the AUC for the prediction of ARDS.
Consequently, angiotensin 1 (ANG1) is converted to angiotensin 2 (ANG2) through angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) [88].
The factors we selected could be clarified into the following groups: growth factors (VEGF-A, TGF-beta1, bFGF, PDGF-BB, and HGF), angiopoietin and receptor (ANG1, ANG2, and TIE-2), matrix metalloproteinase (MMP-3, MMP-9, and MMP-13), chemokines (MCP-1 and GCP-2), inflammatory factors (IL-10 and IFN-gamma), angiogenesis inhibitor (Thrombospondin-1), and adipose-related factors (adiponectin, leptin, chemerin, and resistin).

Por este motivo, uno de los primeros eventos que acontecen en respuesta a VEGF, es la estimulacion de las metaloproteinasas (MMPs) de matriz extracelular y angiopoyetina-2 (ANG2), que produce la degradacion de la membrana basal y estimula el desacoplamiento de las celulas murales respectivamente (Potente et al.; Augustin et al., 2009).
