Raising the bar: how HIF-1 helps determine tumor radiosensitivity.

Abstract

Through a poorly understood mechanism, tumors respond to radiation by secreting cytokines which inhibit endothelial cell apoptosis, thereby limiting treatment response by minimizing vessel damage. We have recently discovered that this pathway is governed by a major angiogenesis regulator, hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1). We uncovered dual mechanisms… (More)
