PURPOSE: HIF1α over expression correlates with poor prognosis in a number of cancers. Although it is widely accepted that hypoxia induces HIF1α expression up-regulation by a reduction in oxygen dependent degradation, HIF1α up-regulation under normoxic conditions is noted with increasing frequency in many cancers. We reviewed the current knowledge of mechanisms of normoxic and hypoxic HIF1α up-regulation, and its therapeutic implications with a particular focus on its role as a potential biomarker in prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Although the literature on the role of HIFs in cancer development and progression has been reviewed extensively, few publications have specifically conside..View full abstract
