angiomotin, Amot
This gene belongs to the motin family of angiostatin binding proteins characterized by conserved coiled-coil domains and C-terminal PDZ binding motifs. The encoded protein is expressed predominantly in endothelial cells of capillaries as well as larger vessels of the placenta where it may mediate the inhibitory effect of angiostatin on tube formation and the migration of endothelial cells toward growth factors during the formation of new blood vessels. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

mRNA and protein expression of the angiogenesis-related genes EDIL3, AMOT and ECM1 in mesenchymal stem cells in psoriatic dermis.
Zhang et al., Taiyuan, China. In Clin Exp Dermatol, Jan 2016
Our previous microarray study showed that the angiogenesis-related genes EDIL3 (epidermal growth factor-like repeats and discoidin I-like domains 3), AMOT (angiomotin) and ECM1 (extracellular matrix protein 1), had high expression levels in dermal mesenchymal stem cells (DMSCs) from psoriatic skin lesions.

Merlin's wizardry guides cohesive migration.
Morrison et al., Jena, Germany. In Nat Cell Biol, Mar 2015
The collective migration of epithelial cell sheets is now shown to be mediated by a signalling axis that involves the merlin tumour-suppressor protein, the tight-junction-associated angiomotin-Rich1 complex and the Rac1 small GTPase.
Influence of Sex on Basal and Dickkopf-1 Regulated Gene Expression in the Bovine Morula.
Hansen et al., Araçatuba, Brazil. In Plos One, 2014
Expression of all genes tested that were affected by sex in experiment 1 was affected in a similar manner in Experiment 2. In contrast, effects of DKK1 on gene expression were largely not repeatable in Experiment 2. The exception was for the Hippo signaling gene AMOT, which was inhibited by DKK1.
