More Information
Product Details
Synonyms Erythropoietin; Epoetin
Product Type Protein
Source/Host CHO cells

The extracellular domain of human EPO (aa 30-193) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of a mutant human IgG1.

Crossreactivity Human
Biological Activity

Measured by the dose-dependant stimulation of human megakaryoblastic leukemia cells.

Purity ≥98% (SDS-PAGE)
Endotoxin Content <0.06EU/μg protein (LAL test; Lonza).
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 100μg/ml in sterile PBS.
Formulation Lyophilized from 0.2μm-filtered solution in PBS.
Protein Negative Control

Fc (human) IgG1 Control (rec.) (non-lytic)

Other Product Data

Non-lytic: Acts as a long lasting fusion protein which only binds to the receptor. Mutations to the complement (C1q) and FcgR I binding sites of the IgGs Fc fragment render the fusion proteins incapable of antibody directed cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement directed cytotoxicity (CDC).

Erythropoietin is the principal hormone involved in the regulation of erythropoiesis by stimulating the proliferation and differentiation of erythroid progenitor cells and the maintenance of a physiological level of circulating erythrocyte mass. It is a glycoprotein produced primarily by the kidney. The biological effects of EPO are mediated by the erythropoietin receptor (Epo R). Genetic variations in EPO is associated with susceptibility to microvascular complications of diabetes type 2 (MVCD2) (including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy leading to end-stage renal disease and diabetic neuropathy). It is used for the treatment of anemia and misused as a performance-enhancing drug in endurance athletes.
