angiopoietin-related protein 7   

GtoPdb Ligand ID: 5321

Abbreviated name: ANGPTL7
Synonyms: angiopoietin-like factor | angiopoietin-like protein 7 | AngX | CDT6 [1] | cornea-derived transcript 6 protein
Comment: 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.
Species: Human
