|Function||Cellular oxygen sensor that catalyzes, under normoxic conditions, the post-translational formation of 4-hydroxyproline in hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) alpha proteins. Hydroxylates a specific proline found in each of the oxygen-dependent degradation (ODD) domains (N-terminal, NODD, and C-terminal, CODD) of HIF1A. Also hydroxylates HIF2A. Has a preference for the CODD site for both HIF1A and HIF1B. Hydroxylated HIFs are then targeted for proteasomal degradation via the von Hippel-Lindau ubiquitination complex. Under hypoxic conditions, the hydroxylation reaction is attenuated allowing HIFs to escape degradation resulting in their translocation to the nucleus, heterodimerization with HIF1B, and increased expression of hypoxy-inducible genes. EGLN1 is the most important isozyme under normoxia and, through regulating the stability of HIF1, involved in various hypoxia-influenced processes such as angiogenesis in retinal and cardiac functionality. Target proteins are preferencially recognized via a LXXLAP motif.|

The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes thepost-translational formation of 4-hydroxyproline inhypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) alpha proteins. HIF is atranscriptional complex that plays a central role in mammalianoxygen homeostasis. This protein functions as a cellular oxygensensor, and under normal oxygen concentration, modification byprolyl hydroxylation is a key regulatory event that targets HIFsubunits for proteasomal destruction via the von Hippel-Lindauubiquitylation complex. Mutations in this gene are associated witherythrocytosis familial type 3 (ECYT3).
