ANGPTL4

A gene on chromosome 19p13.3 that encodes angiopoietin-like protein 4, which is expressed in endothelial cells in response to hypoxia. It is directly involved in regulating glucose homeostasis, lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity; it may act as a regulator of angiogenesis and modulate tumourigenesis, and may protect endothelial cells by secreted factors. It reduces endothelial cell motility and inhibits sprouting and tube formation.
