Thrombopoietin/THPOProtein Product Information
Synonym:THPO, MGC163194, MGDF, MKCSF, ML, MPLLG, TPO
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human THPO (NP_000451.1) precursor (Met 1-Gly 353) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Species:Human
Expressed Host:CHO Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Thrombopoietin/THPOProtein QC Testing
Purity:> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured in a cell proliferation assay using MO7e human megakaryocytic leukemic cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 50-200 ng/ml.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Ser 22
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human THPO consists of 343 amino acids with the predicted molecular mass of 36.9 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rhTHPO is approximately 60-80 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Thrombopoietin/THPOProtein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Background

Thrombopoietin (TPO or THPO), also known as myeloproliferative leukemia virus ligand (c-Mpl), is a hematopoietic growth factor belonging to the EPO/TPO family. The thrombopoietin protein is produced mainly by the liver and the kidney that regulates the production of platelets by the bone marrow. Thrombopoietin protein stimulates both proliferation of progenitor megakaryocytes and their maturation to platelet-producing megakaryocytes, and also accelerates the recovery of platelets. Thrombopoietin protein is involved in cardiovascular disease as it regulates megakaryocyte development and enhances platelet adhesion/aggregation. It has been identified that surface c-MPL, the receptor for thrombopoietin protein, binds to the ligand and mediates the action.
