Activation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 during macrophage differentiation.

Monocytes/macrophages of the myeloid lineage are the main cellular effectors of innate immunity. Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is essential for myeloid cell activation in response to inflammatory stimuli. However, it has not been established whether HIF-1 activity is induced during differentiation from monocyte to macrophage. We demonstrate that… CONTINUE READING
