The field of hypoxia research has exploded in recent years as the importance of oxygen-sensing pathways have been implicated in physiology and disease. Much is understood in relation to the hypoxia inducible factors (HIFs) and the hydroxylase enzymes that regulate them. However, there are many areas that remain to be fully elucidated in relation to how hypoxia-dependent signalling cross talks with metabolism, cancer development and progression, inflammation and inflammatory disease. This series of reviews will focus on highlighting new emerging areas within the field of oxygen sensing and signaling, and integrating this knowledge with what is already established in the field.
