Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a transcription factor that mediates cellular and systemic homeostatic responses to reduced O2 availability in mammals, including angiogenesis, erythropoiesis, and glycolysis. HIF-1 activity is controlled by the O2-regulated expression of the HIF-1α subunit. Under nonhypoxic conditions, HIF-1α protein is subject to ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation. Here we report that missense mutations and/or deletions involving several different regions of HIF-1α result in constitutive expression and transcriptional activity in nonhypoxic cells. We demonstrate that hypoxia results in decreased ubiquitination of HIF-1α and that missense mutations increase HIF-1α expression under nonhypoxic conditions by blocking ubiquitination.
