Recombinant Zebrafish Tie‑2 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 928-T2)
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 4-10 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 25 ng/mL of biotinylated Recombinant Human Ang-2 to immobilized Recombinant Zebrafish Tie-2 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 928-T2) coated at 4 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 50 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Tie‑2 was detected in immersion fixed whole mount zebrafish embryo (24 hours old) using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Zebrafish Tie‑2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF928) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Tie-1/Tie (tyrosine kinase with Ig and EGF homology domains 1) and Tie-2/Tek comprise a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) subfamily with unique structural characteristics: two immunoglobulin-like domains flanking three epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domains and followed by three fibronectin type III-like repeats in the extracellular region and a split tyrosine kinase domain in the cytoplasmic region. These receptors are expressed primarily on endothelial and hematopoietic progenitor cells and play critical roles in angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and hematopoiesis.
Zebrafish Tie-2 cDNA encodes a 1116 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein shares 38% sequence homology with human Tie-2 in the extracellular domain. Two ligands, angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) and angiopoietin-2 (Ang2), which bind Tie-2 with high-affinity have been identified. Ang2 has been reported to act as an antagonist for Ang1. Mice engineered to overexpress Ang2 or to lack Ang1 or Tie-2 display similar angiogenesis defects.
