Summation

The Tie2/Tek receptor tyrosine kinase plays a pivotal role in vascular and hematopoietic development and is expressed exclusively on endothelial lineage. Tie2 interacts with a group of ligands belonging to angiopoietin family and undergoes activation.
These ligands show opposing actions, angiopoietin 1 and angiopoietin 4 stimulate the Tie2 phosphorylation and angiopoietin 2 inhibits it. Upon tyrosine phosphorylation Tie2 acts as a scaffold for various signaling proteins involved in different signal transduction cascades that can effect survival of endothelium and angiogenic sprout formation.
