TEM8 / ANTXR1 Background

ANTXR1 contains 1 VWFA domain and belongs to the ATR family. ATR (Ataxia telangiectasia and Rad3 related) and ATM (Ataxia telangiectasia mutated) are closely related kinases that are activated by DNA damage. They are serine-threonine protein kinases and belongs to the phosphatidylinositol 3' kinase-like kinase (PIKK) family. Upon recruitment by the DNA damage binding proteins/complexes (ATRIP for ATR; MRN for ATM), ATM/ATR initiate the DNA damage checkpoint by phosphorylating a number of key proteins. ANTXR1 interacts with extracellular matrix proteins and with the actin cytoskeleton. It functions in cell attachment and migration. ANTXR1 also mediates adhesion of cells to type 1 collagen and gelatin, reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and promotes cell spreading. It plays a role in the angiogenic response of cultured umbilical vein endothelial cells.
