FunctionTranscription factor involved in the induction of oxygen regulated genes. Binds to core DNA sequence 5'-[AG]CGTG-3' within the hypoxia response element (HRE) of target gene promoters. Regulates the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and seems to be implicated in the development of blood vessels and the tubular system of lung. May also play a role in the formation of the endothelium that gives rise to the blood brain barrier. Potent activator of the Tie-2 tyrosine kinase expression. Activation seems to require recruitment of transcriptional coactivators such as CREBPB and probably EP300. Interaction with redox regulatory protein APEX seems to activate CTAD.
Tissue specificityExpressed in most tissues, with highest levels in placenta, lung and heart. Selectively expressed in endothelial cells.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in EPAS1 are the cause of erythrocytosis familial type 4 (ECYT4) [MIM:611783]. ECYT4 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by increased serum red blood cell mass, elevated hemoglobin concentration and hematocrit, and normal platelet and leukocyte counts.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
Contains 1 PAC (PAS-associated C-terminal) domain.
Contains 2 PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) domains.
modificationsIn normoxia, is probably hydroxylated on Pro-405 and Pro-531 by EGLN1/PHD1, EGLN2/PHD2 and/or EGLN3/PHD3. The hydroxylated prolines promote interaction with VHL, initiating rapid ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation. Under hypoxia, proline hydroxylation is impaired and ubiquitination is attenuated, resulting in stabilization.
In normoxia, is hydroxylated on Asn-847 by HIF1AN thus probably abrogating interaction with CREBBP and EP300 and preventing transcriptional activation.
Phosphorylated on multiple sites in the CTAD.
The iron and 2-oxoglutarate dependent 3-hydroxylation of asparagine is (S) stereospecific within HIF CTAD domains.

Predicted band size: 96 kDa
Observed band size: 100 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
False colour image of Western blot: Anti-HIF-2-alpha antibody [OTI2G5] staining at 1/500 dilution, shown in black; Rabbit Anti-GAPDH antibody [EPR16891] (ab181602) loading control staining at 1/20000 dilution, shown in red. In Western blot, ab157249 was shown to bind specifically to HIF-2-alpha. A band was observed at 100 kDa in treated wild-type A549 cell lysates with no signal observed at this size in EPAS1 knockout cell line ab259774 (knockout cell lysate ab259779). To generate this image, wild-type and EPAS1 knockout A549 cell lysates were analysed. First, samples were run on an SDS-PAGE gel then transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane. Membranes were blocked in 5 % BSA in TBS-0.1 % Tween® 20 (TBS-T) before incubation with primary antibodies overnight at 4 °C. Blots were washed four times in TBS-T, incubated with secondary antibodies for 1 h at room temperature, washed again four times before development with Optiblot (ECL reagent ab133456) and imaged with 20 seconds exposure time. Secondary antibodies used were HRP conjugated Goat anti-Mouse (H+L) and Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed (ab216777) at 1/20000 dilution.
