Abstract

Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a heterodimeric DNA-binding complex of the subunits alpha and beta with relevance in O(2) and energy homeostasis. The labile component, HIF-1alpha, is not only activated by hypoxia but also by peptides such as insulin and interleukin-1 (IL-1) in normoxia. We investigated whether inhibitors of mitogen-activated protein kinase kinases (MAPKKs: PD 98059, U0126) and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K: LY 294002) do not only lower the hypoxia-induced, but also the insulin- and IL-1-induced HIF-1alpha accumulation and HIF-1 DNA-binding in human hepatoma cell cultures (line HepG2). The results show that LY 294002 suppressed HIF-1 activation in a dose-dependent manner irrespective of the stimulus. With respect to target proteins controlled by HIF-1, the production of erythropoietin was fully blocked and that of vascular endothelial growth factor reduced following inhibition of the PI3K pathway. The role of MAPKKs in this process remained in question, because PD 98059 and U0126 did not significantly reduce HIF-1alpha levels at non-toxic doses. We propose that PI3K signaling is not only important in the hypoxic induction of HIF-1 but it is also crucially involved in the response to insulin and IL-1.

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.
