|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||40285 Da|
|Other Names||Hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha inhibitor, 11411n4, Factor inhibiting HIF-1, FIH-1, Hypoxia-inducible factor asparagine hydroxylase, HIF1AN, FIH1|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human FIH1 was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||FIH1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Hydroxylates HIF-1 alpha at 'Asp-803' in the C-terminal transactivation domain (CAD). Functions as an oxygen sensor and, under normoxic conditions, the hydroxylation prevents interaction of HIF-1 with transcriptional coactivators including Cbp/p300- interacting transactivator. Involved in transcriptional repression through interaction with HIF1A, VHL and histone deacetylases. Hydroxylates specific Asn residues within ankyrin repeat domains (ARD) of NFKB1, NFKBIA, NOTCH1, ASB4, PPP1R12A and several other ARD-containing proteins. Also hydroxylates Asp and His residues within ARDs of ANK1 and TNKS2, respectively. Negatively regulates NOTCH1 activity, accelerating myogenic differentiation. Positively regulates ASB4 activity, promoting vascular differentiation.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Note=Mainly cytoplasmic localization, but interaction with NOTCH1 results in nuclear localization and interaction with ABPA3 results in perinuclear localization in macrophages|

Factor inhibiting HIF-1 (FIH1) is an Fe (II)-dependent hydroxylase enzyme that serves as an oxygen sensor in the hypoxia response pathway (1). FIH1 binds to HIF-1alpha and inhibits its transactivation function. It also binds to VHL, which too functions as a transcriptional corepressor that inhibits HIF-1alpha transactivation function (2). In addition, FIH1 regulates the Notch signaling output and plays a role in how Notch signaling modulates the hypoxic response. It negatively regulates Notch activity and accelerates myogenic differentiation (3).
