We have discovered that filamin A (FLNA), a large cytoskeletal actin-binding protein, physically interacts with HIF-1a and promotes tumor growth and angiogenesis. Hypoxia induces a calpain-dependent cleavage of FLNA to generate a naturally occurring C-terminal fragment that accumulates in the cell nucleus. This fragment interacts with the N-terminal portion of HIF-1a spanning amino acid residues 1-390 but not with HIF-2a. In hypoxia this fragment facilitates the nuclear localization of HIF-1a, is recruited to HIF-1a target gene promoters, and enhances HIF-1a function, resulting in up-regulation of HIF-1a target gene expression in a hypoxia-dependent fashion. These results unravel an important mechanism that selectively regulates the nuclear accumulation and function of HIF-1a and potentiates angiogenesis and tumor progression.||Source Title:||Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/115763||ISSN:||00278424||DOI:||10.1073/pnas.1320815111/-/DCSupplemental|
