Abstract

Hypoxic preconditioning is thought to rely on gene products regulated by hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1. Here, we show that the HIF-1 target gene cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1, p21(WAF1/CIP1), is essential for neuroprotection by hypoxic/aglycemic or erythropoietin preconditioning using wild-type and p21(WAF1/CIP1)-deficient neurons. Furthermore, overexpression of wild-type p21(WAF1/CIP1) or phospho-mutants significantly increased cell death after hypoxia/aglycemia. Moreover, deferoxamine-induced endogenous tolerance did not involve p21(WAF1/CIP1) expression in cortical neurons. Our data suggest that balanced expression and potentially posttranslational regulation of p21(WAF1/CIP1) is required for hypoxic preconditioning.
