Plk 3 Functions as an Essential Component of the Hypoxia Regulatory Pathway by Direct Phosphorylation of HIF-1 α


Polo-like kinase 3 (Plk3) plays an important role in the regulation of cell cycle progression and stress responses. Plk3 also has a tumor-suppressing activity as aging PLK3-null mice develop tumors in multiple organs. The growth of highly vascularized tumors in PLK3-null mice suggests a role for Plk3 in angiogenesis and cellular responses to hypoxia. By… (More)
