Recombinant Human Angiopoietin-related Protein 7/ANGPTL7 (C-10His)
Recombinant Human Angiopoietin-related Protein 7 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Gln27-Pro346 is expressed with a 10His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CU24
BackgroundAngiopoietin-like 7 (ANGPTL7) is a secreted glycoprotein that is structurally related to the angiopoietins. Members of this protein family contain an N-terminal coiled coil domain and a C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain. ANGPTL7 shares 89% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat ANGPTL7. It is secreted as a 45-50kDa monomer that forms disulfide-linked homotrimers and tetramers via the coiled coil domain. ANGPTL7 is expressed in the corneal stroma, trabecular meshwork, and sclera and is elevated in glaucoma aqueous humor. Its production is up-regulated in trabecular meshwork cells by glucocorticoids and TGF-β and in cartilage by TNF-α. Overexpression of ANGPTL7 in trabecular meshwork cells inhibits the production of collagen and proteoglycans. When overexpressed in tumor cells it promotes collagen and proteoglycan deposition but inhibits tumor xenograft progression and tumor angiogenesis.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH7.4.
