    ..Furthermore, these results demonstrate that when using novel compounds, the choice of vectors used in the experimental procedures might be of great importance for the correct conclusions to be made. ..

    ..This analysis allows the visualization of temporal and cell-to-cell changes in global RNA synthesis following hypoxic stress. ..

    ..In addition, we will discuss the role of NF-?B in the control of the cellular response to hypoxia. ..

    ..Taken together, these results demonstrate that KDM2 is a novel HIF target that can help coordinate the cellular response to hypoxia. In addition, these results might explain why KDM2 levels are often deregulated in human cancers. ..

    ..We discuss possible new points of therapeutic intervention aiming to harness the current understanding of the HIF-NF-κB crosstalk. ..
  7. Bandarra D, Biddlestone J, Mudie S, Müller H, Rocha S. HIF-1α restricts NF-κB-dependent gene expression to control innate immunity signals. Dis Model Mech. 2015;8:169-81 pubmed publisher
    ..These results indicate that HIF-1α is required to restrain the NF-κB response, and thus prevents excessive and damaging pro-inflammatory responses. ..

    ..Our results thus suggest that HIF2α is controlled transcriptionally in a cell-cycle-dependent manner and in response to oncogenic signalling. ..

    ..These results establish a mechanism by which cell cycle mediators, such as CDKs, temporally control the activity of PHD1, directly altering the regulation of HIF1α and Cep192. ..
