ICC/IF 1/500.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 21149592
WB 1/800. Detects a band of approximately 59 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 38 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Thrombopoietin peptide (ab93626).
With this antibody, we have found that blocking with 5% goat or donkey serum significantly reduces background as compared to BSA or milk.


  • FunctionLineage-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 diseaseDefects 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.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the EPO/TPO family.
  • DomainTwo-domain structure with an erythropoietin-like N-terminal and a Ser/Pro/Thr-rich C-terminal.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
