Background: The regulatory mechanism of BLT2 is largely unknown. Results: RanBPM interacts with BLT2 and inhibits BLT2-induced ROS generation and chemotaxis. Conclusion: Our findings suggest that RanBPM acts as a negative regulator of BLT2. Significance: Identification of regulators would provide better understanding of BLT2 signaling and potentially various BLT2- associated inflammatory pathogenesis.
