ANGPTL4

ANGPTL4 (Angiopoietin-Like 4): ANGPTL4, a member of the angiopoietin-like protein family, is a multifunctional protein involved in regulating lipid metabolism, angiogenesis, and inflammation. It exerts its effects through various mechanisms, including inhibition of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity, which leads to increased plasma triglyceride levels. Additionally, ANGPTL4 modulates angiogenesis by inhibiting endothelial cell migration and tube formation, thereby influencing vascular development and remodeling. Moreover, ANGPTL4 has been implicated in inflammation regulation through its interactions with inflammatory mediators and its role in tissue repair processes. Dysregulation of ANGPTL4 has been associated with metabolic disorders such as obesity, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance, as well as with cancer progression and metastasis. The intricate involvement of ANGPTL4 in various physiological and pathological processes highlights its potential as a therapeutic target for metabolic and vascular diseases, as well as for cancer treatment strategies aimed at inhibiting angiogenesis and metastasis.
