Term Information [More information on response to hypoxia]

Accession
GO:0001666
Name
response to hypoxia
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
response to hypoxic stress, response to lowered oxygen tension, response to intermittent hypoxia, response to sustained hypoxia
Definition
Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a stimulus indicating lowered oxygen tension. Hypoxia, defined as a decline in O2 levels below normoxic levels of 20.8 - 20.95%, results in metabolic adaptation at both the cellular and organismal level. Source: GOC:hjd
Comment
Note that this term should not be confused with 'response to anoxia ; GO:0034059'. Note that in laboratory studies, hypoxia is typically studied at O2 concentrations ranging from 0.1 - 5%.
