Angiopoietin-like Proteins

Angiopoietin-like, also known as angiopoietin-related proteins, are structurally related to the angiopoietins. They are secreted proteins with N-terminal coiled-coil domains and C-terminal fibrinogen-like domains. Unlike the angiopoietins, ANGPTLs do not bind Tie-2. Seven ANGPTL proteins have been identified (ANGPTL1 through 7).
