Although it was known for a long time that oxygen deprivation leads to the transcriptional induction of the gene encoding erythropoietin, the molecular mechanisms behind this process remained enigmatic. The cloning of the hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs), the finding that HIF-1 regulates the expression of many more genes apart from erythropoietin, and the elucidation of the oxygen-dependent mechanisms degrading the HIF alpha subunits recently led to the spectacular discovery of the molecular principles of oxygen sensing. This review aims to summarize our current knowledge of oxygen-regulated gene expression..
