The regulation of blood red cell production by the hormone erythropoietin (Epo) provides a paradigm for control of gene expression by oxygen. Analysis of this pathway has revealed a widespread system of gene regulation based on a transcriptional complex termed hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF). Hydroxylation of specific prolyl and asparinyl residues in the α subunit of HIF by a series of non-haem iron-dependent dioxygenases has been defined as a novel mechanism of protein modification that… Expand
Molecular biology of erythropoietin.
TLDR
Evidence suggests that rHuEPO may be a useful neuroprotective agent in relation to EPO signalling and treatment with recombinant human EPO is efficient and safe in improving the management of the anemia associated with chronic renal failure. Expand
Thyroid hormone induces erythropoietin gene expression through augmented accumulation of hypoxia-inducible factor-1.
TLDR
It is found that thyroid hormone increased Hif-1alpha protein accumulation by increasing HIF-1 alpha protein synthesis rather than attenuating its proteasomal degradation, which may contribute to the adaptive response of increased oxygen demand under hyperthyroid conditions. Expand
The HIF pathway as a therapeutic target.
TLDR
This review focuses on the HIF pathway as a therapeutic target because of its potential use for the treatment of ischemic disease and cancer. Expand
Current Understanding of HIF in Renal Disease
TLDR
The discovery of HIF prolyl-hydroxylases as key enzymes of oxygen sensing and HIF proteolysis offer new possibilities to therapeutically target HIF. Expand

TLDR
This work has shown that the transcription factors, hypoxia‐inducible factors (HIFs), play a central role in cellular adaptation to critically low oxygen levels in both normal and compromised tissues and that several target genes of HIFs are involved in iron homeostasis. Expand

TLDR
It is likely that understanding how oxygen tension modulates immune function will provide insights into disease pathogenesis, and may offer new opportunities for treatment. Expand

  • 2003
TLDR
The data indicate that the DNA sequences of the genes encoding Epo (including the 3' regulatory region) and HIF-1alpha appear to be conserved, and suggest that the altered erthropoietic response in Andean natives reflects adaptations in hypoxia sensing, rather than hypoxic response, mechanisms. Expand
Disruption of dimerization and substrate phosphorylation inhibit factor inhibiting hypoxia-inducible factor (FIH) activity.
TLDR
It is shown that phosphorylation of Thr-796 prevents the hydroxylation of Asn-803 by FIH, which enhances the transcriptional response in hypoxia and implies that the homodimeric form of FIH is required for productive substrate binding. Expand
Effect of hypoxia on the expression of iron regulatory proteins 1 and the mechanisms involved
TLDR
It is suggested that HIF/HRE system was an essential link between IRP1 and hypoxia and the HRE of IRP 1 5′‐regulation regions could combine with HIF‐1 in vitro. Expand
Differential regulation of HIF-1 alpha prolyl-4-hydroxylase genes by hypoxia in human cardiovascular cells.
TLDR
Overexpression studies revealed thatPHD3 levels influence HIF-1 alpha stability in both normoxic and hypoxic conditions, suggesting that PHD3 may participate in a feedback loop controlling HIF activity. Expand

Regulation of the erythropoietin gene: evidence that the oxygen sensor is a heme protein.
TLDR
A model is proposed in which a ligand-dependent conformational change in a heme protein accounts for the mechanism by which hypoxia as well as cobalt and nickel stimulate the production of Epo. Expand
Desferrioxamine induces erythropoietin gene expression and hypoxia-inducible factor 1 DNA-binding activity: implications for models of hypoxia signal transduction.
TLDR
Treatment of Hep3B cells with desferrioxamine (DFX) induced HIF-1 activity and EPO RNA expression with kinetics similar to the induction of Hif-1 by hypoxia or cobalt chloride, suggesting the existence of a common Hypoxia signal-transduction pathway leading to HIF -1 induction in different cell types.

Inducible operation of the erythropoietin 3' enhancer in multiple cell lines: evidence for a widespread oxygen-sensing mechanism.
TLDR
It is shown that an oxygen-sensing system similar, or identical, to that controlling erythropoietin expression is wide-spread in mammalian cells and mediates other adaptive responses to hypoxia. Expand
A Conserved Family of Prolyl-4-Hydroxylases That Modify HIF
TLDR
In cultured mammalian cells, inappropriate accumulation of HIF caused by forced expression of the HIF-1α subunit under normoxic conditions was attenuated by coexpression of HPH, indicating that HPH is an essential component of the pathway through which cells sense oxygen. Expand
HIFα Targeted for VHL-Mediated Destruction by Proline Hydroxylation: Implications for O2 Sensing
TLDR
It is found that human pVHL binds to a short HIF-derived peptide when a conserved proline residue at the core of this peptide is hydroxylated, which may play a key role in mammalian oxygen sensing. Expand
FIH-1 is an asparaginyl hydroxylase enzyme that regulates the transcriptional activity of hypoxia-inducible factor.
TLDR
It is shown that the protein FIH-1, previously shown to interact with HIF, is an asparaginyl hydroxylase, an Fe(II)-dependent enzyme that uses molecular O(2) to modify its substrate. Expand
Targeting of HIF-α to the von Hippel-Lindau Ubiquitylation Complex by O2-Regulated Prolyl Hydroxylation
TLDR
It is shown that the interaction between human pVHL and a specific domain of the HIF-1α subunit is regulated through hydroxylation of a proline residue by an enzyme the authors have termed Hif-α prolyl-hydroxylase (HIF-PH). Expand
The tumour suppressor protein VHL targets hypoxia-inducible factors for oxygen-dependent proteolysis
TLDR
It is indicated that the interaction between HIF-1 and pVHL is iron dependent, and that it is necessary for the oxygen-dependent degradation of HIF α-subunits, which may underlie the angiogenic phenotype of VHL-associated tumours. Expand
Regulation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha is mediated by an O2-dependent degradation domain via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway.
TLDR
The identification of an oxygen-dependent degradation (ODD) domain within HIF-1alpha that controls its degradation by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway is reported and may provide a means of controlling gene expression by changes in oxygen tension. Expand
Induction of endothelial PAS domain protein-1 by hypoxia: characterization and comparison with hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha.
TLDR
Functional studies in a mutant cell line expressing neither HIF-1alpha nor EPAS-1 confirmed that both proteins interact with hypoxically responsive targets, but suggest target specificity with greater EPas-1 transactivation of the VEGF promoter than the LDH-A promoter. Expand
