EPO is the major regulator of differentiation, proliferation, and survival of erythroid progenitors. Hypoxia induces erythropoiesis which causes cells to produce hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) that is directly involved in EPO expression. HIF-Prolyl hydroxylase (HIF-PH) is a sensor of levels of iron, oxygen, and metabolic activity. High levels of HIF protein induce EPO production in the kidneys and liver, and mobilize iron to support erythropoiesis. EPO has been used in the treatment of anemia associated with a number of conditions, such as chronic kidney disease, cancer patients on chemotherapy, and antiviral HIV therapy.Product Details

- 165 amino acid protein with a predicted molecular weight of approximately 18 kD. It migrates at approximately 37-57 kD as a result of its glycosylation.
- EPO is primarily expressed in kidney (70-90% of the total EPO) and liver cells. EPO is expressed by hepatocytes, cortical interstitial fibroblasts in ischemic kidneys, astrocytes, and neurons under hypoxic conditions.
- EPO is the major regulator of differentiation, proliferation, and survival of erythroid progenitors. EPO expression is induced by hypoxia, HIF, and other transcription factors. EPO also plays a role in neuroprotection.
