HIF/HIF Prolyl-Hydroxylase

HIF prolyl-hydroxylase is an enzyme involved in the HIF (Hypoxia-inducible factor) signalling pathways, and is the target for a set of therapeutic drugs called HIF prolyl-hydroxylase inhibitors. Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) is an evolutionarily conserved transcription factor that allows the cell to respond physiologically to low concentrations of oxygen. A class of prolyl hydroxylases which act specifically on HIF has been identified; hydroxylation of HIF allows the protein to be targeted for degradation.
