Targeting HIF-activated collagen prolyl 4-hydroxylase expression disrupts collagen deposition and blocks primary and metastatic uveal melanoma growth

We show the importance of hypoxia in activating enzymes that control proper collagen maturation in eye melanoma. Disrupting this process with an inhibitor of the HIF-1/p300 transcription complex leads to disordered collagen structure and reduces tumor growth in the eye and liver in mice xenografts.
