Hypoxia is an important environmental stressor leading to endocrine disruption and reproductive impairment in fish. Although the hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is known to regulate the transcription of various genes mediating oxygen homeostasis, its role in modulating steroidogenesis-related gene expression remains poorly understood. In this study, the regulatory effect of HIF-1 on the expression of 9 steroidogenic enzyme genes was investigated in zebrafish embryos using a "gain-of-function and loss-of-function" approach...

The local anesthetic lidocaine induces cell death by altering reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and mitochondrial electron transport chain function. Because hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is involved in determining oxygen metabolism and mitochondria function, we investigated the involvement of HIF-1 activity in lidocaine-induced cell death. We investigated the role of HIF activation on lidocaine-induced caspase activation and cell death in renal cell-derived RCC4 cells lacking functional von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) protein...

Human lysyl oxidase (LOX) is a hypoxia-responsive gene whose product catalyzes collagen crosslinking and is thought to be important in cancer metastasis and osteoarthritis. We previously demonstrated that LOX was upregulated by hypoxia inducible factor 2 (HIF-2) more strongly than hypoxia inducible 1 (HIF-1). We further investigated the response of the LOX gene and LOX promoter to HIFs. LOX mRNA, measured by real time reverse transcriptase-PCR, was strongly up-regulated (almost 40-fold), by transfection of HEK-293T cells with a plasmid encoding the HIF-2α subunit of HIF-2, but only three-fold by a plasmid encoding HIF-1α...

Tibetan pigs that inhabit the Tibetan Plateau exhibit striking phenotypic and physiological differences from lowland pigs, and have adapted well to extreme conditions. However, the mechanisms involved in regulating gene expression at high altitude in these animals are not fully understood. In this study, we obtained transcriptomic and proteomic data from the heart tissues of Tibetan and Yorkshire pigs raised in the highlands (TH and YH) and lowlands (TL and YL) via RNA-seq and iTRAQ (isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation) analyses, respectively...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Recent studies in the kidney have revealed that the well characterized tumor antigen mucin 1 (MUC1/Muc1) also has numerous functions in the normal and injured kidney. RECENT FINDINGS: Mucin 1 is a transmembrane mucin with a robust glycan-dependent apical targeting signal and efficient recycling from endosomes. It was recently reported that the TRPV5 calcium channel is stabilized on the cell surface by galectin-dependent cross-linking to mucin 1, providing a novel mechanism for regulation of ion channels and normal electrolyte balance...

Maternal decidua plays a critical role in implantation and placentation. Impaired decidualization causes failed intravascular trophoblast invasion and inadequate placentation and then increases the risk of preeclampsia (PE). RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) has achieved great advances in the characterization and quantification of transcriptomes, is a powerful tool for new transcript discovery, genome annotation and expression profiling. In the present study, we conducted a RNA-Seq analysis to compare gene expression between decidua of PE (n = 3, early-onset severe PE, EOSPE; n = 3, late-onset severe PE, LOSPE) and normal pregnancies (n = 3)...

Macroautophagy/autophagy is the process by which cellular components are degraded and recycled within the lysosome. These components include mitochondria, the selective degradation of which is known as mitophagy. Mitochondria are dynamic organelles that constantly adapt their morphology, function, and number to accommodate the metabolic needs of the cell. Extensive metabolic reconfiguration occurs during cell differentiation, when mitochondrial activity increases in most cell types. However, our data demonstrate that during physiological retinal ganglion cell (RGC) development, mitophagy-dependent metabolic reprogramming towards glycolysis regulates numbers of RGCs, which are the first neurons to differentiate in the retina and whose axons form the optic nerve...

Metabolic adjustment to hypoxia in Macrobrachium nipponense (oriental river prawn) implies a shift to anaerobic metabolism. Hexokinase (HK) is a key glycolytic enzyme in prawns. The involvement of HK in the hypoxia inducible factors (HIFs) pathway is unclear in prawns. In this study, the full-length cDNA for HK (MnHK) was obtained from M. nipponense, and its properties were characterized. The full-length cDNA (2385 bp) with an open reading frame of 1350 bp, encoded a 450-amino acid protein. MnHK contained highly conserved amino acids in the glucose, glucose-6-phosphate, ATP, and Mg(+2) binding sites...

Hes1 is a Notch target gene that plays a major role during embryonic development. Previous studies have shown that HIF-1α can interact with the Notch intracellular domain and enhance Notch target gene expression. In this study, we have identified a Notch-independent mechanism that regulates the responsiveness of the Hes1 gene to hypoxia. Using P19 cells we show that silencing the Notch DNA binding partner CSL does not prevent hypoxia-dependent upregulation of Hes1 expression. In contrast to CSL, knockdown of HIF-1α or Arnt expression prevents Hes1 induction in hypoxia...

Hypoxia resulting from occlusion of the sinus ostium is known to be one of the major pathogenic mechanisms of sinusitis. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a widely known transcriptional factor that induces the cellular response to hypoxic conditions and activates the transcription of several genes, such as erythropoietin and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). We hypothesized that induced permeability caused by hypoxia is a major pathophysiologic mechanism of upper airway disease such as sinusitis...

Obese subjects exhibit lower adipose tissue oxygen consumption in accordance with the lower adipose tissue blood flow. Thus, compared with lean subjects, obese subjects have 44% lower capillary density and 58% lower vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The VEGF expression together with hypoxia-inducible transcription factor-1 (HIF-1) activity also requires phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)- and target of rapamycin (TOR)-mediated signaling. HIF-1alpha is an important signaling molecule for hypoxia to induce the inflammatory responses...

Oxidative stress has a critical role in the pathogenesis of acetaminophen (APAP) induced hepatocellular necrosis, and the identification of novel approaches to attenuate oxidative stress is essential to prevent/revert the disease. This study investigated the role of both HIF-1 and HIF-2 in the pathogenesis of APAP-induced oxidative stress, as well as the underlying mechanisms. In the present study, we initially found that knockout of HIF-1α or HIF-2α reduced APAP toxicity, and double knockout afforded the best protection...

In this issue of Acta Physiologica, Xie et al.(1) describe the protective role of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) against myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury in diabetic rats. This study demonstrates that HIF-1 signalling pathway is impaired in diabetes, abolishing the cardioprotective effect of sevoflurane post-conditioning; the administration of deferoxamine re-activates HIF-1 conferring cardioprotection.

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic stem cell (HSC)-driven neoplasia characterized by the expression of the constitutively-active tyrosine kinase BCR/Abl. CML therapy based on tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKi) is highly effective in inducing remission but not in targeting leukemia stem cells (LSC), which sustain minimal residual disease and are responsible for CML relapse following discontinuation of treatment. The identification of molecules capable to target LSC appears therefore of primary importance to aim at CML eradication...

HIF-1 is associated with poor prognoses and therapeutic resistance in cancer patients. We previously developed a novel hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1 inhibitor, IDF-11774, a clinical candidate for cancer therapy. We also reported that IDF-1174 inhibited HSP70 chaperone activity and suppressed accumulation of HIF-1α. In this study, IDF-11774 inhibited the accumulation of HIF-1α in vitro and in vivo in colorectal carcinoma HCT116 cells under hypoxic conditions. Moreover, IDF-11774 treatment suppressed angiogenesis of cancer cells by reducing the expression of HIF-1 target genes, reduced glucose uptake, thereby sensitizing cells to growth under low glucose conditions, and decreased the extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) and oxygen consumption rate of cancer cells...

Hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a key regulator in hypoxia and can determine the fate of brain cells during ischemia. However, the mechanism of HIF-1 regulation is still not fully understood in ischemic brains. We tested a hypothesis that both the 26S and the 20S proteasomal pathways were involved in HIF-1α degradation under ischemic conditions. Using in vitro ischemic model (oxygen and glucose deprivation) and a mouse model of middle cerebral artery occlusion, we tested effects of inhibitors of proteasomes and prolyl hydroxylase (PHD) on HIF-1α stability and brain injury in cerebral ischemia...

The treatment paradigm for advanced and metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has evolved rapidly since the arrival of targeted therapies and novel immunotherapies. mRCC was previously treated only with cytokines. However, discoveries of mutations affecting the von Hippel-Lindau tumor suppressor gene (leading to increased expression of VEGF and hypoxia inducible factor/HIF-1) and of deregulations in the phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase/AKT/mTOR pathway (resulting in tumor angiogenesis, cell proliferation, and tumor growth) have led to the development of numerous targeted therapies...

BACKGROUND: Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma with poor prognosis. Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) plays a crucial role in the cellular response to hypoxia and regulates the expression of multiple genes involved in tumor progression in various cancers. However, the importance of the expression of HIF-1α in MPNSTs is unclear. METHODS: The expression of HIF-1α was examined immunohistochemically in 82 MPNST specimens...
