Mitochondrial complex III is required for hypoxia-induced ROS production and cellular oxygen sensing.

Abstract

Multicellular organisms initiate adaptive responses when oxygen (O(2)) availability decreases, but the underlying mechanism of O(2) sensing remains elusive. We find that functionality of complex III of the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC) is required for the hypoxic stabilization of HIF-1 alpha and HIF-2 alpha and that an increase in reactive… (More)
