Hypoxia affects expression of circadian genes PER1 and CLOCK in mouse brain


Chilov, D; Hofer, T; Bauer, C; Wenger, R H; Gassmann, M (2001). Hypoxia affects expression of circadian genes PER1 and CLOCK in mouse brain. FASEB Journal, 15(14):2613-2622.

Abstract

The key elements of circadian clockwork and oxygen homeostasis are the PAS protein family members PER and CLOCK and hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha (HIF-1alpha). The PAS domain serves as an interface for protein-protein interactions. We asked whether a cross-talk exists between the PAS components of hypoxic and circadian pathways. We found several isoforms of PER1 protein that exhibit tissue-specific size differences. In the mouse brain, a predominantly nuclear 48 kDa isoform that followed a daily rhythm was observed. The 48 kDa form was found in the nuclear fractions derived from mouse liver, Swiss3T3 fibroblasts, and N2A neuroblastoma cells. In mouse kidney and human 293 kidney cells, a 55 kDa PER1 form was detected. CLOCK was observed as a predicted 100 kDa protein in rat-1 cells and in all analyzed mouse tissues including brain, liver, kidney, and spleen. In contrast to PER1, CLOCK protein expression was not rhythmic. Exposure to hypoxia led to increased PER1 and CLOCK protein levels in mice. Based on coimmunoprecipitation experiments that showed protein-protein interaction between PER1 and the alpha subunit of HIF-1, we suggest that these hypoxic effects may be modulated by HIF-1alpha.-Chilov, D., Hofer, T., Bauer, C., Wenger, R.

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.
