This PDF file includes:

  • Materials and Methods
  • Fig. S1. Ang1 is expressed in retinal pericytes and efficiently excised after tamoxifen treatment in Ang1fl/fl mouse.
  • Fig. S2. Ang1 suppresses the expression of Ang2 and VEGF-A in the retinas of OIR model.
  • Fig. S3. Ang1 suppresses the NVT and avascular areas in OIR model in a time- and dose-dependent manner.
  • Fig. S4. Combination of Ang1 and VEGF-Trap is more beneficial than single administration of VEGF-Trap in OIR model.
  • Fig. S5. Isolated retinal astrocytes were cultured, and their purity was confirmed using fluorescence-activated cell sorting analysis.
  • Fig. S6. Blood vessels, not astrocytes, express Tie2 in the retina during the postnatal period and in the OIR model.
  • Fig. S7. Ang1 directly binds integrins αv and β5 in primary cultured retinal astrocytes.
  • Fig. S8. FAK-AKT signaling pathway is involved in Ang1-induced fibronectin synthesis.
