Multilineage embryonic hematopoiesis requires hypoxic ARNT activity.

D M Adelman, E Maltepe, M C Simon,

Although most cells undergo growth arrest during hypoxia, endothelial cells and placental cytotrophoblasts proliferate in response to low O(2). We demonstrate that proliferation of embryonic multilineage hematopoietic progenitors is also regulated by a hypoxia-mediated signaling pathway. This pathway requires HIF-1 (HIF-1alpha/ARNT heterodimers) because Arnt(-/-) embryoid bodies fail to exhibit hypoxia-mediated ... Read more >>
