Deleted in bladder cancer protein 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DBC1 gene.

This gene is located in chromosome 9 9q32-33, a chromosomal region that frequently shows loss of heterozygosity in transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. It contains a 5 CpG island that may be a frequent target hypermethioninemia, and it can pass gipermetropiya-based silencing in some bladder cancers.

The function of this gene is unknown, and it is not placed in a family of protein or functional way. However, it is suspected as a tumor suppressor gene.
