Term Detail
GO term:detection of hypoxia
Synonym: detection of reduced oxygen levels
GO id:GO:0070483
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.
Number of paths to term: 5
