Interaction Information:

Comment Primary myoblasts were made to differentiate in cell culture, and were then treated with 0.5% oxygen for 16 h, versus normoxic control. Activation of a hypoxic program was confirmed by measuring expression of VEGF, Glut1, and PDK1, genes well known to be induced by hypoxia. Hypoxia induced the expression of alternatively spliced PGC-1alpha 8-fold. The expression of full length PGC-1alpha, on the other hand, was unaltered by hypoxic treatment. Hypoxia thus preferentially induces alternatively spliced PGC-1alpha expression in skeletal muscle cells.
