Myeloproliferative leukemia virus oncogene ligand
Thrombopoietin nirs variant 1
Lineage-specific cytokine affecting the proliferation and maturation of megakaryocytes from their committed progenitor cells. It acts at a late stage of megakaryocyte development. It may be the major physiological regulator of circulating platelets.
Involvement in disease
Defects in THPO are a cause of essential thrombocythemia (ET) [MIM:187950]. ET is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait which is characterized by elevated platelet levels due to sustained proliferation of megakaryocytes, and frequently lead to thrombotic and haemorrhagic complications.
Belongs to the EPO/TPO family.
Two-domain structure with an erythropoietin-like N-terminal and a Ser/Pro/Thr-rich C-terminal.
