Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1), a basic helix-loop-helix-PAS domain transcription factor, plays an integral role in the body's response to low oxygen concentrations, or hypoxia.
It consists of two subunits: an oxygen-regulated α-subunit and a constitutively expressed β-subunit. It is expressed in all metazoan organisms.
Under normoxia, HIF-1 alpha undergoes hydroxylation at specific prolyl residues which leads to an immediate ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of the subunit. In contrast, under hypoxic conditions, HIF-1 regulates the transcription of hundreds of genes in a cell type-specific manner.
The HIF-1α subunit is regulated by O2-dependent hydroxylation of proline residue 402, 564, or both, by prolyl hydroxylase domain protein 2 (PHD2), which promotes binding of the von Hippel-Lindau protein (VHL), leading to ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation; and O2-dependent hydroxylation of asparagine residue 803 by factor inhibiting HIF-1 (FIH-1), which blocks the binding of the 300-kilodalton coactivator protein (p300) and CREB binding protein (CBP). Eventually, HIF-1 acts as a master regulator of numerous hypoxia-inducible genes under hypoxic conditions. The target genes of HIF-1 encode proteins that increase O2 delivery and mediate adaptive responses to O2 deprivation. Despite its name, HIF-1 is induced not only in response to reduced oxygen availability but also by other stimulants, such as nitric oxide, or various growth factors.
In a hypoxic environment, HIF-1α accumulates in cells and binds to HIF-1β to form HIF-1, and HIF-1 binds to HRE to participate in multiple signaling pathways, leading to the response of cells to hypoxia.
Currently, HIF signaling pathways mainly include: PI-3K-Akt /HIF-1α pathway, SENP1 /HIF-1α pathway, HIF-1α/BNIP3 /Bcline-1 signaling pathway, MAPK /HIF-1α signaling pathway. In addition, proteins such as pVHL heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90), cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2), can also mediate hypoxic signaling with HIF-1 alpha.
