Regulation of LDH mRNA in D. melanogaster male adults after hypoxic stress. mRNA levels (bars) are shown relative to the gene expression at normoxia (21%). (A) LDH expression after 1% O2 for 1 h, 3 h and 4 h. After 1 h of hypoxia, no alteration in LDH expression could be detected. 3 h of hypoxia caused the LDH mRNA levels to increase about 2.2 fold and 4 h of hypoxia to about 3.4 fold compared to the normoxic control (B) LDH expression after 6% O2for 24 h. After applying long-term moderate hypoxia with 6% O2 for 24 h, an increase in LDH mRNA expression to about 1.5 fold could be detected (*p < 0.05; **p < 0.01).
