Regulation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha is mediated by an O2-dependent degradation domain via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway.
Hypoxia induces a group of physiologically important genes such as erythropoietin and vascular endothelial growth factor. These genes are transcriptionally up-regulated by hypoxia-inducible factor 1Expand

Activation of Hypoxia-inducible Transcription Factor Depends Primarily upon Redox-sensitive Stabilization of Its α Subunit*
Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a heterodimeric transcription factor that is critical for hypoxic induction of a number of physiologically important genes. We present evidence that regulationExpand

In 1949, the discovery that sickle hemoglobin (α2 βS2) has an abnormal electrophoretic mobility prompted Linus Pauling and his colleagues to christen sickle cell anemia “a molecular disease.”1 TheExpand

An essential role for p300/CBP in the cellular response to hypoxia.
p300 and CBP are homologous transcription adapters targeted by the E1A oncoprotein. They participate in numerous biological processes, including cell cycle arrest, differentiation, and transcriptionExpand

Oxygen sensing and molecular adaptation to hypoxia.
This review focuses on the molecular stratagems utilized by bacteria, yeast, and mammals in their adaptation to hypoxia. Among this broad range of organisms, changes in oxygen tension appear to beExpand

Analysis of cytokine mRNA and DNA: detection and quantitation by competitive polymerase chain reaction.
The expression of two cytokines, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and interleukin 3 (IL-3), has been investigated in MLA-144 cells before and after induction with phorbolExpand

Regulation of the erythropoietin gene: evidence that the oxygen sensor is a heme protein.
Erythropoietin (Epo), the hormone that stimulates red blood cell production, is synthesized in the kidney and liver in response to hypoxia. The human hepatoma cell line Hep3B regulates its productionExpand

Nonenzymatic glycosylation of human serum albumin alters its conformation and function.
Approximately 10% of the albumin in normal human serum is modified by nonenzymatic glycosylation, primarily at the epsilon-amino group of lysine residue 525. Incubation of albumin with glucose underExpand
