Activation of the tyrosine kinase with Ig and epidermal growth factor homology domain 2 (Tie2) receptor by angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) is critical for vascular stabilization: it promotes survival signal transduction via auto-phosphorylation and reduces vascular permeability by strengthening tight junctions between endothelial cells. Thus, Tie2/Ang1 signaling is a promising therapeutic target for vascular diseases. However, in vivo use of existing Tie2 signaling modulators, such as recombinant Ang1, is restricted by limitations in manufacturability and stability. Here, we present a novel engineered tetra-valent agonistic antibody, ASP4021, which can specifically and fully activate the Tie2 receptor in an equivalent manner to Ang1. ASP4021 induced Tie2 self-phosphorylation and inhibited apoptosis in a human primary endothelial cell line. Additionally, single administration of ASP4021 significantly suppressed mustard-oil-induced vascular permeability in rats. ASP4021 may thus be a potential therapeutic candidate for diseases associated with vascular weakness such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema and critical limb ischemia.
