Regulation of gene expression by oxygen: NF-kappaB and HIF-1, two extremes


, : Regulation of gene expression by oxygen: NF-kappaB and HIF-1, two extremes. Free Radical Biology & Medicine 33(9): 1231-1242

Aerobic life is dependent on molecular oxygen for ATP regeneration, but only possible in a narrow range of oxygen concentrations. Increased oxygen tension is toxic through the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), while a decrease in oxygen concentration impairs energy availability and, hence, cell viability. Cells have developed strategies to respond to changes in oxygen tension: specific systems detect excessive ROS and hypoxia, leading to the activation of specific transcription factors and expression of appropriate target genes. The aim of this review is to describe how hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) and nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) are regulated and what could be the sensors to the changes in oxygen levels. Some of the physiological responses initiated by these transcription factors are also mentioned.

It is commonly asserted that the sub-Saharan African HIV/AIDS epidemic is predominantly due to heterosexual transmission. However, recent re-examination of the available evidence strongly suggests that unsafe health care is the more likely vector....

Insect cells have been cultured for over 30 years, but their application is still hampered by low cell densities in batch fermentations and expensive culture media. With respect to the culture method, the fed-batch culture mode is often found to g...

The pertussis toxin secretion system of Bordetella pertussis initially was thought to comprise eight proteins, Pt1A-Pt1H. We have investigated the existence of another protein, PtlI, encoded by a putative gene located between ptlD and ptlE. A B. p...
