It is well known that a lot of target genes activated by HIF-1a are involved in cell proliferation, survival, and differentiation, including erythropoietin, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), basic fibroblast growth factor, and others.[sup][14] Ono et al .[sup][15] constructed HIF-1a knockdown C2C12 cells to analyze the role of HIF-1a in myoblast differentiation and found that HIF-1a knockdown effectively blocked myotube formation and myosin heavy chain (MHC) expression.
