Background. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α HIF-1α and NF-κB play important roles in the inflammatory response after hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation H-R. Here, the role of myeloid HIF-1α in liver hypoxia, injury, and inflammation after H-R with special regard to NF-κB activation was studied. Methods. Mice with a conditional HIF-1α knockout KO in myeloid cell-line and wild-type WT controls were hemorrhaged for 90 min  mm Hg and resuscitated. Controls underwent only surgical procedures. Results. After six hours, H-R enhanced the expression of HIF-1α-induced genes vascular endothelial growth factor VEGF and adrenomedullin ADM. In KO mice, this was not observed. H-R-induced liver injury in HIF-1α KO was comparable to WT. Elevated plasma interleukin-6 IL-6 levels after H-R were not reduced by HIF-1α KO. Local hepatic hypoxia was not significantly reduced in HIF-1α KO compared to controls after H-R. H-R-induced NF-κB phosphorylation in liver did not significantly differ between WT and KO. Conclusions. Here, deleting HIF-1α in myeloid cells and thereby in Kupffer cells was not protective after H-R. This data indicates that other factors, such as NF-κB, due to its upregulated phosphorylation in WT and KO mice, contrary to HIF-1α, are rather key modulators of inflammation after H-R in our model.
