ANGPTL7, also named as CDT6, is a member of the angiopoietin-like (ANGPTL) family of proteins, which are important regulators of Angiogenesis. It is a secreted 45-kDa glycoprotein that folds into a homotetramer structure linked by disulﬁde bonds. ANGPTL7 was originally discovered in the stromal layer of the corne, and moderately expressed in the human trabecular meshwork. The chromosomal location of the ANGPTL7 gene (1p36.22) is within the GLC3B locus (1p36.2-1p36.1) of primary congenital glaucoma, supporting ANGPTL7 as a candidate glaucoma gene. ANGPTL7 could have a pathogenic role in glaucoma, and may serve as a potential therapeutic target.
