Term Information [More information on detection of hypoxia]

Accession
GO:0070483
Name
detection of hypoxia
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
detection of reduced oxygen levels
Definition
The series of events in which a stimulus indicating lowered oxygen tension is received by a cell and converted into a molecular signal. 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:mah, GOC:BHF
