Scientific Background:Oxygen availability plays a major role in the regulation of expression of many different genes including erythropoietin, nitric oxide synthase (NOS), heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1), glucose transporters and vascular growth factors necessary for the maintenance of homeostasis in hypoxic conditions. Hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) has been identified as a bHLH-PAS family member which is instrumental in the oxygen-dependent regulation of these genes. HIF-1α rapidly accumulates in the nucleus upon exposure to hypoxic conditions where it heterodimerizes with the aryl hydrocarbon nuclear receptor translocator, ARNT, also referred to as HIF-1β.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
HIF-1α monoclonal antibody (mgc3) Western blot
Figure A: Western blot using MAb to Hypoxia-inducible Factor 1α (mgc3) (Prod. No. ALX-804-216).Method: Nuclear extracts (25µg) from normoxic (20% O2) and hypoxic (1% O2) human HeLa and mouse Hepa1 cells were subjected to SDS-PAGE and HIF-1α was detected in Western blots using MAb mgc3 (1:1’000). Note that mgc3 detects denatured HIF-1α only in human cells in Western blot analysis [1].

Figure B: Electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA) using MAb to Hypoxia-inducible Factor 1α (mgc3) (Prod. No. ALX-804-216).Method: Nuclear extracts (5µg) from normoxic and hypoxic human HeLa and mouse wild-type (Hepa1) and ARNT-mutant (Hepa1C4) hepatoma cells were analyzed by EMSA. MAb mgc3 supershifted the HIF-1 heterodimer in HeLa and Hepa1 cells. No HIF DNA-binding activity was detected in ARNT-mutant Hepa1C4 cells. In contrast to Western blot analysis, mgc3 was able to detect also non-human HIF-1α in EMSA [1,2].
