EPO is a glycoprotein that is glycosylated up to 40-60%, which causes its molecular weight to vary from 30-34 kD depending on the carbohydrate percentage. Hypoxia induces erythropoiesis, and hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) 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 induces EPO production in the kidneys and liver, and mobilizes iron to support erythropoiesis. EPO has been used in the treatment of anemia associated with chronic kidney disease, treatment of cancer patients on chemotherapy, and antiviral HIV therapy.Product Details

AB_2563470 (BioLegend Cat. No. 660302)
- 166 amino acid, predicted molecular weight of approximately 18.6 kD, migrates at approximately 30-34 kD as a result of its glycosylation.
- EPO is primarily expressed in the kidneys (70-90% of the total EPO) and liver. EPO is expressed by hepatocytes, cortical interstitial fibroblasts in ischemic kidneys, astrocytes, and neurons under hypoxia.
- 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 has a possible role in neuroprotection.
- Erythroid progenitor cells.
- EpoR (homodimer).
