Angiogenesis is controlled by a local balance between stimulators and inhibitors of new vessel growth and is suppressed under normal physiologic conditions. Angiogenesis has been shown to be essential for growth and metastasis of solid tumors. In order to obtain blood supply for their growth, tumor cells are potently angiogenic and attract new vessels as results of increased secretion of inducers and decreased production of endogenous negative regulators. BAI1 contains at least one 'functional' p53-binding site within an intron, and its expression has been shown to be induced by wildtype p53. There are two other brain-specific angiogenesis inhibitor genes, designated BAI2 and BAI3 which along with BAI1 have similar tissue specificities and structures, however only BAI1 is transcriptionally regulated by p53. BAI1 is postulated to be a member of the secretin receptor family, an inhibitor of angiogenesis and a growth suppressor of glioblastomas [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ADGRB1 Gene
ADGRB1 (Adhesion G Protein-Coupled Receptor B1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADGRB1 include Carey-Fineman-Ziter Syndrome and Glioma Susceptibility 1. Among its related pathways are DNA Damage Response and p53 Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and transmembrane signaling receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADGRB3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ADGRB1 Gene
Phosphatidylserine receptor which enhances the engulfment of apoptotic cells (PubMed:24509909). Also mediates the binding and engulfment of Gram-negative bacteria (PubMed:26838550). Stimulates production of reactive oxygen species by macrophages in response to Gram-negative bacteria, resulting in enhanced microbicidal macrophage activity (PubMed:26838550). In the gastric mucosa, required for recognition and engulfment of apoptotic gastric epithelial cells (PubMed:24509909). Promotes myoblast fusion (By similarity). Activates the Rho pathway in a G-protein-dependent manner (PubMed:23782696). Inhibits MDM2-mediated ubiquitination and degradation of DLG4/PSD95, promoting DLG4 stability and regulating synaptic plasticity (By similarity). Required for the formation of dendritic spines by ensuring the correct localization of PARD3 and TIAM1 (By similarity). Potent inhibitor of angiogenesis in brain and may play a significant role as a mediator of the p53/TP53 signal in suppression of glioblastoma (PubMed:11875720).
