Ligand id: 5321

Name: angiopoietin-related protein 7

Abbreviated name: ANGPTL7

Species: Human

Classification
Compound class Endogenous peptide in human, mouse or rat
Synonyms
angiopoietin-like factor | angiopoietin-like protein 7 | AngX | CDT6 [1] | cornea-derived transcript 6 protein
Comments
An endogenous peptide, which is highly and specifically expressed in the cornea. Corneal expression is confined to the stromal layer [1]. It is highly homologous to the anti-angiogenic angiopoietins. and may contribute to the avascularity of the human cornea.
