Human TIE2 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human TIE2 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human TIE2 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Tyrosine kinase with Ig and EGF homology domain 2(Tie-2), also called TEK tyrosine kinase, endothelial(TEK). Tie-2 and tie-1 are expressed in early embryonic vascular system and in maternal decidual vascular endothelial cells, where the vasculature undergoes an active angiogenesis. Tie-2, but not tie-1, expression was also detected in extraembryonic mesoderm of the amnion. Angiogenesis is coordinated with follicular cell growth in goitrogenesis. The angiopoietins, Ang-1 and Ang-2, are angiogenic growth factors acting through Tie-2. Tie-2 and Ang-1 are expressed in thyroid epithelial and endothelial cells, and Tie-2 is regulated by TSH and cAMP in follicular cells. And Tie-2 expression is increased in goiter in both humans and rats, consistent with a role in goitrogenesis. Tie2/Ang-1 signaling pathway plays a critical role in the maintenance of HSCs in a quiescent state in the BM niche. And the Tie-2 signaling pathway is also critical for endothelial cell-smooth muscle cell communication in venous morphogenesis.
