Abstract
Hypoxia is a hallmark of various ischemic diseases such as ischemic heart disease, ischemic limb, ischemic stroke, and solid tumors. Gene therapies for these diseases have been developed with various therapeutic genes including growth factors, anti-apoptotic genes, and toxins. However, non-specific expression of these therapeutic genes may induce dangerous side effects in the normal tissues. To avoid the side effects, gene expression should be tightly regulated in an oxygen concentration dependent manner. The hypoxia inducible promoters and enhancers have been evaluated as a transcriptional regulation tool for hypoxia inducible gene therapy. The hypoxia inducible UTRs were also used in gene therapy for spinal cord injury as a translational regulation strategy. In addition to transcriptional and translational regulations, post-translational regulation strategies have been developed using the HIF-1 alpha ODD domain. Hypoxia inducible transcriptional, translational, and post-translational regulations are useful for tissue specific gene therapy of ischemic diseases. In this review, hypoxia inducible gene expression systems are discussed and their applications are introduced. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
