Hypoxic activation of HIF-1α directly regulates the transcriptional activity of ERRγ.

Abstract

<p>(<b>A</b>) HepG2 cells were transfected with hERRγ-Luc. After 24 h of the transfection, HepG2 cells were exposed to hypoxia for indicated time period. Experiments were carried out in triplicate and data are expressed as the fold activation relative to the control. (<b>B–C</b>) HepG2 cells were transfected with hERRγ (−2 kb)-Luc, hERRγ (−1 kb)-Luc, hERRγ (−0.5 kb)-Luc, hERRγ (−0.3 kb)-Luc, hERRγ (HREmt1)-Luc, hERRγ (HREmt2)-Luc, hERRγ (HREmt1+2)-Luc. After 24 h of the transfection, HepG2 cells were exposed to hypoxia for 9 hr and analyzed using luciferase and β-galactosidase assay. Experiments were performed in duplicate and data are expressed as the fold activation relative to the control. (<b>D</b>) ChIP assay: HepG2 cell was exposed to hypoxia for 9 hr. Input represents 10% of purified DNA in each sample. Cell extracts were immunoprecipitated with anti-HIF-1α and purified DNA samples were employed for Q-PCR with primers binding to HRE1 (−1080 to −849) and HRE2 (−508 to −295) and distal site (−1826 to −1586) on the <i>ERRγ</i> gene promoter. All data are representative of at least three independent experiments. Error bars show ± S.E.M. <sup>***</sup><i>P</i><0.001 by two-tailed Student <i>t</i>-test.</p
