There is reaction with serum in the cell supernatants, which results in strong background and makes it difficult to see the angiopoietins in cell supernatants. However when precipitated (using soluble Tie2) the signals are very good and strong.
Store product as a concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening the vial.
Angiopoietin-2 (ANGPT2) is an antagonist of angiopoietin 1 (ANGPT1) and endothelial TEK tyrosine kinase (TIE-2, TEK). The protein disrupts the vascular remodeling ability of ANGPT1 and may induce endothelial cell apoptosis. Three transcript variants encoding three different isoforms have been found for this gene.
