Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Metazoan species maintain oxygen homeostasis through the activity of hypoxia-inducible factors, which are transcriptional activators that regulate the expression of hundreds of genes to match O2 supply and demand. Here, we review the involvement of hypoxia-inducible factors in the molecular physiology and pathophysiology of cellular O2 sensing, O2 delivery, O2 utilization, and systemic O2 sensing.
