Thrombopoietin (leukemia virus oncogene ligand, megakaryocyte growth and development factor), also known as THPO is a lineage-dominant hematopoietic cytokine.1 TPO is a glycoprotein hormone constitutively produced mainly by the liver and kidney and is the primary physiological regulator megakaryopoiesis2 and platelet production.1
The biological activity of Mouse TPO was determined by a cell proliferation assay using MO7e cells (Avanzi, G. et al., 1988, Br. J. Haematol. 69:359). The expected ED50 for this effect is typically 1 - 3 ng/ml.
