hif-1-pathway  HIF-1 Signaling Pathway

Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1), principal component of HIF-1 pathway, is a transcriptional activator induced by hypoxia, and a modulator of oxygen homeostasis and physiological responses (1).

In hypoxic conditions, HIF-1 plays an essential role in the adaptation of cells and organs to changes related to the presence of oxygen (5), and it is required to maintain the pluripotency and survival of stem cells under hypoxic conditions (6).

hif-1 pathway  HIF-1 Signaling Pathway and diseases

Hypoxia inducible factor-1 α (HIF-1α) is the key responder adapted to tumor hypoxia. Under hypoxia conditions, HIF-1α signaling is activated and responsible for cell biology associated with metabolism, inflammation, vascular homeostasis and tumorigenesis (3). HIF-1 regulates tumor biological behavior by influencing apoptotic/proliferative activity, vasomotor function, energy metabolism, and angiogenesis (4).

Previous research indicates that hypoxia increases the population of lung cancer stem cells resistant to gefitinib in EGFR mutation-positive NSCLC, and the HIF-1 signaling pathway is activated in EGFR-TKI-resistant lung cancer cells (2).
HIF-1α activation is related to the development of multidrug resistance and hypoxia-induced EMT in tumor cells (4). Moreover, recent findings suggest that HIF-1α-activated autophagy is a crucial factor in the promotion of cell survival under the distressed microenvironment, thereby leading to the chemo-/radioresistance (7).
