hypoxia with CoCl2

Post by matjes » Fri Jun 12, 2009 10:30 am

Hi,
I'm searching for my bachelor thesis the reaction of CoCl2 with O2 when it's used in hypoxia experiments. I can't find anything specific.
Maybe you have also a reference to this?

Sorry to bump this old thread but does anyone have any idea on this? I'm also interested on mimetics in general and possible noisy data?

From http://toxsci.oxfordjournals.org/content/82/2/638.full:

"Cobalt has been widely used in the treatment of anemia and as a hypoxia mimic in cell culture and it is known to activate hypoxic signaling by stabilizing the hypoxia inducible transcription factor 1α (HIF1α)."
