Independent losses of the Hypoxia-Inducible Factor (HIF) pathway within Crustacea

Allie Graham & Felipe Barreto
Metazoans respond to hypoxic stress via the Hypoxia Inducible Factor (HIF) pathway, a mechanism thought to be extremely conserved due to its importance in monitoring cellular oxygen levels and regulating responses to hypoxia. However, recent work revealed that key members of the HIF pathway have been lost in specific lineages (a tardigrade and a copepod), suggesting alternative mechanisms have evolved but are still undescribed. Using genomic and transcriptomic data from 70 different species across 12...
