The purified and characterization of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is described. HIF-1 is composed of subunits HIF-1 and HIF-1 . Purified HIF-1 polypeptide, its amino acid sequence and polynucleotide sequence are provided. A HIF-1 variant that dimerizes to HIF-1 producing a nonfunctional HIF-1 complex is described. Methods for the prevention and treatment of hypoxia-related disorders are provided.
