Abstract

The heterodimeric hypoxia-inducible transcription factor HIF-1 is involved in the oxygen-regulated transcription of several genes including erythropoietin. Cloning and sequencing of the alpha-subunit of mouse HIF-1 cDNA revealed a 90% overall homology to human HIF-l alpha but lack of any similarity in the 5' untranslated region and translational start site. Mouse HIF-1 alpha is encoded by an evolutionary conserved single-copy gene located on chromosome 12. We found a widespread constitutive expression of mouse HIf-1 alpha mRNA which was particularly high in lung and kidney. Despite a strong erythropoietin induction, HIF-1 alpha mRNA concentrations were not upregulated in hypoxic mouse tissues.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
