Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence linking the gene product to a pathway or mechanism linked to ageing
Description

HIF1A is a transcription factor that responds to oxidative stress and oxygen [435]. Changes in HIF1A with age have been reported in rats and could be related to age-related pathologies [1593], such as neurodegeneration [1534]. Deficiencies in HIF1A have not been associated with ageing in mice [434]. Further evidence is needed to directly link HIF1A to human ageing.
