HIF‑1 alpha in Human Kidney Cancer Tissue. HIF‑1 alpha was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney cancer tissue using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse HIF‑1 alpha Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1935) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Background: HIF-1 alpha
The hypoxia-inducible transcription factor 1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha ) is the regulated member of the transcription factor heterodimer HIF-1. HIF-1 binds to hypoxia-response elements (HREs) in the promoters of many genes involved in adapting to an environment of insufficient oxygen or hypoxia. Hypoxic tissue environments occur in vascular and pulmonary diseases as well as cancer, which illustrates the broad impact of gene regulation by HIF-1 alpha.
