Abstract

Oxygen-deprived regions of a solid tumor can induce tumor suppressor p53 expression and hence select for p53-mutant tumor cells with diminished apoptotic potential. It has been proposed that the hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) alpha subunit binds to p53 and protects it from proteasomal degradation. However, we found that hypoxic conditions that strongly induce HIF-1-dependent endogenous gene expression as well as HIF-1alpha protein neither induce p53-dependent gene expression nor p53 protein. The iron chelator deferoxamine induced both HIF-1alpha and p53, but p53 up-regulation could still be detected in HIF-1alpha-deficient cells, suggesting that mechanisms other than HIF-1alpha activation contribute to oxygen-regulated p53 induction.

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.
