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.
