Human TPO Recombinant Protein (mammalian derived): Image 1
Serial dilutions of Human TPO Recombinant Protein (mammalian derived) were added to M-O7e cells. Cell proliferation was measured and the linear portion of the curve was used to calculate the ED50.


Human TPO Recombinant Protein (mammalian derived) is supplied as lyophilized material that is very stable at -20°C. It is recommended to reconstitute with sterile water at a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml which can be further diluted in aqueous solutions as needed. Addition of a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) is recommended for long-term storage.

Product Description

MW (kDa) 36
Purity A greater than or equal to 90% purity was determined by SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin Endotoxin levels are less than or equal to 1 EU / 1 μg hTPO.
Activity The bioactivity of recombinant hTPO was determined in an M-O7e cell proliferation assay. The ED50 of each lot is less than or equal to 15 ng/ml.

Source / Purification

Recombinant human TPO was expressed in genetically modified CHO cells and is supplied in a lyophilized form.


Thrombopoietin (TPO) is a 332-amino acid glycoprotein produced by the liver, kidney, marrow stroma, and several other tissues (1). This cytokine is responsible for the regulation of platelet production and promotes both the proliferation of megakaryocyte progenitors and their maturation into platelet-producing megakaryocytes by binding to the thrombopoietin receptor (TPOR, c-Mpl) (2-5). The concentration of TPO in the bloodstream is regulated by the TPOR on platelets and megakaryocytes (6). Binding of TPO to the TPOR induces receptor dimerization that leads to phosphorylation and activation of the tyrosine kinase Jak2 (7). Studies have suggested that TPO may be a useful cytokine for the prevention and treatment of thrombocytopenia in cancer patients and for developing new strategies to therapeutically intervene in hematopoiesis (1,5).
