The rhythm gene BMAL1 (Brain and Muscle ARNT-Like 1) may play an important role in glioma tolerance for anti-angiogenesis therapy. In humans with glioma of different pathological grades, BMAL1 expression was significantly different, and the expression of ANG2 (Angiopoietin 2) and VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) was positively correlated with the expression of BMAL1. Additionally, BMAL1 expression is positively correlated with the microvascular density and peritumoral edema of glioma. According to in vitro experiments, silencing the expression of BMAL1 in primary glioma cells results in a decrease in the expression of VEGF. In contrast, overexpression of BMAL1 promotes the expression of ANG2 and VEGF via HIF-1a pathway. Therefore, BMAL1 likely participates in the angiogenesis of glioma by modulating ANG2 and VEGF expression, alters the therapeutic effect of anti-angiogenic treatments, and promotes peritumoral brain edema of glioma.
