Evolutionary Insights Into Oxygen Sensing

Abstract:

In humans, cellular oxygen sensing employs the Hypoxia Inducible Factor (HIF) system in which the prolyl hydroxylase domain containing (PHD) and Factor Inhibiting HIF (FIH) oxygenases play a key role. The oxygen sensing mechanism enabled by the HIF hydroxylases has been extensively studied in humans and other mammals; how ‘lower’ organisms, such as protists and bacteria sense oxygen is less well understood. The social amoeba, Dictyostelium discoideum, and the protozoan parasite,...
