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.

AKB-9778 activates the Tie2 receptor irrespective of extracellular levels of its binding ligands, angiopoietin-1 (agonist) or angiopoietin-2 (antagonist) and may be the most efficient pharmacologic approach to maintain normal Tie2 activation.
Notably, the synthetic cannabinoid JWH-133, known for its potent antiangiogenic and anti-inflammatory properties, has been shown in vivo and in vitro to suppress various inflammatory cytokines and angiogenic growth factors involved in psoriasis pathogenesis, including hypoxia inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), matrix metalloproteinases, basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), angiopoietin-2, interleukin-8 (IL-8), IL-17, and IL-2.
Hypoxia condition leads to increase in the ionizing radiation, angiopoietin-2 and environmental stress that is induced by production of ROS.
Decrease in the expression of angiogenic factors such as angiopoietin-2, VEGF, and bFGF may be a description for the antiangiogenic effects of CX.
Hyperbaric oxygen selectively induces angiopoietin-2 in human umbilical vein endothelial cells.
RG7716 is the first bispecific, monoclonal antibody specifically designed for the eye that simultaneously binds to and inactivates vascular endothelial growth factor A and Angiopoietin-2. These data were presented at Angiogenesis, Exudation, and Degeneration 2018, a medical symposium presented by Bascom Palmer Eye Institute of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, part of the University of Miami Health System.
This finding may be explained partially by the fact that, in the absence of VEGF, angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) causes blood vessels to regress.
Therefore, Angiopoietin-2 has been recently proposed as a marker of severity in acute pancreatitis (5).
The following factors prepared at 800 ng/mL were assayed and exhibited no cross-reactivity or interference: recombinant human angiopoietin-1, angiopoietin-2, angiopoietin-4, and angiopoietin-like 3 and recombinant mouse angiopoietin-3 and angiopoietin-like 3.
