Abcam’s Angiopoietin 2 (ANG2) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human Angiopoietin 2 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernates.
This assay employs an antibody specific for Human Angiopoietin 2 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Angiopoietin 2 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Angiopoietin 2 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of Angiopoietin 2 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.
Optimisation may be required with urine samples.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Please refer to protocols.

FunctionCan induce tyrosine phosphorylation of TIE2. Binds to TIE2 receptor and counteracts blood vessel maturation/stability mediated by angiopoietin-1. Its function may be context-dependent. In the absence of angiogenic inducers, such as VEGF, ANG2-mediated loosening of cell-matrix contacts may induce endothelial cell apoptosis with consequent vascular regression. In concert with VEGF, it may facilitate endothelial cell migration and proliferation, thus serving as a permissive angiogenic signal.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 fibrinogen C-terminal domain.
DomainThe Fibrinogen C-terminal domain mediates interaction with the TEK/TIE2 receptor.
