Erythropoietin, a hormone produced in the adult kidney, controls erythrocyte production. In response to ischemic or hypoxic hypoxia, the level of expression of the gene increases markedly. We have a limited understanding of the factors governing the tissue specificity of erythropoietin gene expression but considerable progress has been made toward understanding the mechanisms that increase erythropoietin gene expression in response to hypoxia. An increase in transcription occurs, mediated (at...Expand abstract
