HIF-1 beta antibody

HIF-1 beta - activating gene transcription in response to hypoxia

Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a heterodimeric transcription factor consisting of alpha and beta subunits. The levels of functional HIF-1 in the cell depends on the level of oxygen allowing cells to respond to hypoxic conditions. HIF-1α is a ubiquitously expressed protein containing an oxygen-dependent degradation domain that under normal conditions regulates its constant degradation. HIF-1 beta, on the other hand, is a stable constitutively expressed protein that localizes to the nucleus.

HIF-1 beta: A Dimerization Partner of HIF-1 alpha Required for an Adaptive Response to Hypoxia

Hypoxia contributes significantly to the pathophysiology of major categories of human disease, including myocardial and cerebral ischemia, cancer, pulmonary hypertension, congenital heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a nuclear protein involved in mammalian oxygen homeostasis.

Controlling the HIF-1 Switch

Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1 beta and Cancer Development

Hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a major transcription factor that is composed of two subunits: HIF-1 alpha and HIF-1 beta, the latter being a constitutively-expressed aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear transporter (ARNT).

HIF Prolyl Hydroxylase 2: an important Oxygen Sensor Protein

Prolyl hydroxylase domain (PHD) proteins, including PHD1, PHD2, and PHD3, mediate oxygen-dependent degradation of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) alpha subunits. Suppression of PHD enzymes leads to stabilization of HIFs and offers a potential treatment option for many ischemic disorders, such as peripheral artery occlusive disease, myocardial infarction, and stroke (1).

HIF-2 alpha Antibody Throws New Light on EPO Dilemma

The HIF family are heterodimeric, oxygen-sensitive transcription factors comprising an alpha and beta subunit which are normally dissociated in normoxic conditions. Our antibody catalog contains products targeting all the Hypoxia Inducible Factor isoforms which have been identified in mammalian cells. These include HIF-2 alpha antibody reagents targeting both the entire protein and specific epitopes.

HIF Antibodies: Beyond HIF-1 alpha

The hypoxia inducible factors are a family of heterodimeric transcription factors which are activated in response to lowered oxygen levels, or hypoxia. Although it may seem that HIF-1 alpha receives all the attention, other HIF antibodies, such as the HIF-2 alpha and HIF-1 beta antibody, are frequently used in clinical research as well.

A Role for HIF-1 alpha Antibody in Renal Research

The Hypoxia Inducible Factors (HIFs) are a family of mammalian transcription factors which are expressed in response to low cellular oxygen concentrations (hypoxia). Three human hypoxia inducible factors have been identified, HIF-1, HIF-2 and HIF-3, each having an alpha and a beta subunit.

Hypoxia-Inducible Factors and Homeostasis

Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1 (HIF-1) is a highly conserved heterodimeric transcription factor. Novus' antibody catalogue contains an extensive range of both HIF-1 alpha and HIF-1 beta, useful for hypoxia, angiogenesis, cancer and many other areas of research.

HIF-1 Beta Antibody Studies and Developments in Hypoxia Research

We at Novus Biologicals have a large HIF-1 (Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1) antibody catalog, with twenty HIF-1 beta antibody products specifically targeted to the beta subunit of HIF-1, a heterodimer which is known to contribute to many human diseases arising from changes in oxygen homeostasis.
