Hypoxia initiates an adaptive physiological response in all organisms and plays a role in the pathogenesis of several human diseases. The hypoxia/HIF-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) transcription factor mediates transcriptional responses to hypoxia by binding to a cis-acting hypoxia-responsive element (HRE) present within target genes. The use of the HIF-1/HRE(More)
A 6008 base pair fragment of the vaccinia virus DNA containing the gene for the precursor of the major core protein 4 a, which has been designated P4 a, was sequenced. A long open reading frame (ORF) encoding a protein of molecular weight 102,157 started close to the position where the P4 a mRNA had been mapped. Analysis of the mRNA by S1 nuclease mapping(More)
