  • Function

    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.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the EPO/TPO family.
  • Domain

    Two-domain structure with an erythropoietin-like N-terminal and a Ser/Pro/Thr-rich C-terminal.
  • Cellular localization

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Human bone marrow tissue labeling Thrombopoietin with ab196026 at 1/4000 dilution  followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/500 dilution and counter-stained with Hematoxylin. (inset: negative control).

    Note: Cytoplasm staining on human bone marrow tissue was observed.

  • Flow Cytometry analysis of Jurkat (human acute T cell leukemia) labelling Thrombopoietin with purified ab196026 at 1/40 (red). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/2000) was used as the secondary antibody. Black - Isotype control, rabbit monoclonal IgG. Blue - Unlabelled control, cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies.


  • Immunofluorescent analysis of Jurkat cells (4% Paraformaldehyde-fixed, 0.1% tritonX-100 permeabilized) labeling Thrombopoietin with ab196026 at 1/50 dilution followed by Goat anti rabbit IgG (AlexaFluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary at 1/400 dilution and counter-stained with DAPI (blue).

    Note: Cytoplasm staining on Jurkat cell line was observed.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Human liver tissue labeling Thrombopoietin with ab196026 at 1/4000 dilution  followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/500 dilution and counter-stained with Hematoxylin. (inset: negative control).

    Note: Cytoplasm staining on human liver tissue was observed.
