Hypoxia in blood samples?
Posted 24 January 2011 - 07:35 AM
When we perform microarray analysis, we see genes like HIF1A, IL1A, IL1B, NFKBIA going up after 3h (suggesting hypoxia??), whereas other hypoxia genes (FOS, CITED2, MKP-1) go down in control conditions (no treatment). With going up and down I mean like 5-fold or more.
Anybody has any idea what may be happening? Is it possible that under the conditions we used that hypoxia occurred?
