Technical Data
ANGPTL6 (Angiopoietin-related Protein 6, Angiopoietin-like Protein 6, Angiopoietin-related Growth Factor, Agf)
Angiopoietin-like 6 (ANGPTL6), also known as angiopoietin related growth factor (AGF), is a secreted 50kD protein that contains a coiled coil domain aa51-77, 126-164 and a fibrinogen-like domain aa238-456. A conserved Integrin binding RGD motif is located within the fibrinogen-like domain. This enables ANGPTL6 to promote skin wound healing by mediating the adhesion and migration of keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. ANGPTL6 also promotes the chemotaxis of vascular endothelial cells resulting in increased vascular permeability and angiogenesis. ANGPTL6 is also secreted by hepatocytes. It inhibits gluconeogenesis in these cells and promotes insulin sensitivity and energy expenditure in mice fed high fat diets. Serum levels of ANGPTL6 are elevated in metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and preeclampsia but are decreased in chronic renal failure. ANGPTL6 is additionally produced by several hematopoietic cell types including megakaryocytes, platelets, mast cells, and uterine NK cells. Mature mouse ANGPTL6 shares 75% and 95% sequence identity with human and rat ANGPTL6.
