ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.11.29

Accepted Name
Hypoxia-inducible factor-proline dioxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
HIF hydroxylase.
Reaction catalysed
Hypoxia-inducible factor-L-proline + 2-oxoglutarate + O(2) <=> hypoxia-inducible factor-trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline + succinate + CO(2)
Cofactor(s)
Iron; L-ascorbate.
Comment(s)
  • Contains iron, and requires ascorbate.
  • Specifically hydroxylates a proline residue in HIF-alpha, the alpha subunit of the transcriptional regulator HIF (hypoxia-inducible factor), which targets HIF for proteasomal destruction.
  • The requirement of oxygen for the hydroxylation reaction enables animals to respond to hypoxia.
