Thrombopoietin (THPO)

Links to databases


THPO (also known as Megakaryocyte colony-stimulating factor) is a is a glycoprotein hormone produced by the liver and kidney. This cytokine affects the proliferation and maturation of megakaryocytes from their committed progenitor cells and thus may be the major physiological regulator of circulating platelets. Disruptions in normal THPO activity can result in thrombocythemia 1, a disorder characterized by excessive platelet production that can be associated with spontaneous hemorrhages and thrombotic episodes.

    • Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 9%
    • Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 11%

Precision (repeatability) is calculated from linearized NPX values over LOD.
