The flavonoid quercetin induces hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha) and inhibits cell proliferation by depleting intracellular iron
Quercetin, a flavonoid with anti- oxidant, metal chelating, kinase modulating and anti- proliferative properties, can induce hypoxia- inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha) in normoxia, but its mechanism of action has not ...
Oxygen-dependent secretion of a bioactive hepcidin-GFP chimera
Hepcidin, a hepatic hormone, regulates serum iron levels by controlling both intestinal iron absorption and iron release from macrophages. Although transcription of hepcidin is controlled by diverse stimuli, it remains ...
Bacterially produced human HIF-1 alpha is competent for heterodimerization and specific DNA-binding
Hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF- 1α) is the regulatory Subunit of HIF- 1. the transcriptional activator and key mediator of the cellular response to hypoxia. Regulation of HIF-1α Occurs at multiple levels ...
Transport of hypoxia-inducible factor HIF-1 alpha into the nucleus involves importins 4 and 7
Hypoxia-inducible transcription factor 1 (HIF-1) mediates the cellular response to hypoxia. HIF-1 activity is controlled via the synthesis, degradation or intracellular localization of its alpha subunit. HIF-1 alpha contains ...
Cobalt induces hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha expression in airway smooth muscle cells by a reactive oxygen species- and PI3K-dependent mechanism
Cobalt can mimic hypoxia and has been implicated as a cause of lung defects. However, the effect of cobalt on airway smooth muscle (ASM) cells has not been analyzed in detail. In this article, we use primary cultures of ...
