Hypoxia is a condition in which there is a decrease in oxygen supply to the cellular environment. Changes to cellular oxygen levels can lead to transcriptional changes of oxygen-regulated genes. Reporter assays are used to study gene expression alteration and modifications in response to environmental changes. Dual-reporter assays allow the simultaneous measurement of two different genes within a single cell, thus improving experimental accuracy. Within this protocol, we describe the utilization of the LightSwitch Dual Assay System to measure BMX expression in response to hypoxic conditions.
