Notch1 Signaling Contributes to Hypoxia-induced High Expression of Integrin β1 in Keratinocyte Migration.


PMID 28266574

Abstract

Oxygen tension is an important micro-environmental factor that affects epidermal development and function. After injury, high oxygen consumption and vascular injury result in partial hypoxia. However, whether hypoxia benefits or hurts wound healing remains controversial. In this study, a tissue oxygen tension monitor was used to detect the spatial and temporal distribution of oxygen in burn wounds. In vitro, we demonstrate that hypoxia promoted the expression of integrin β1 and the migration of keratinocytes. Furthermore, hypoxia-induced migration was slowed by Notch1 ligands and a siRNA against ITGB1 (integrin β1). Our findings suggest that integrin β1 may be an oxygen-sensitive molecule that promotes keratinocyte migration during wound healing and that Notch1 signaling is involved in this process.
