    ..In efforts to identify important differences in gene expression in alpha vs. beta cells, a gene termed HIMP1 (Hypoglycemia/hypoxia Inducible Mitochondrial Protein, or HIG1) has been cloned from an alpha cell cDNA library...

    ..Together these observations indicate that Higd-1a is induced by hypoxia in a HIF-dependent manner and its anti-apoptotic effect results from inhibiting cytochrome C release and reducing caspase activities. ..

    ..We suggest that Rcf1 is a member of an evolutionarily conserved protein family that acts to promote respiratory supercomplex assembly and activity. ..

    ..Taken together, our results suggest that Elongin A is required for the transcription of genes essential for early embryonic development and downregulation of its activity is tightly associated with cellular senescence. ..
