|Official Full Name||thrombopoietin|
|Background||Megakaryocytopoiesis is the cellular development process that leads to platelet production. The main functional protein encoded by this gene is a humoral growth factor that is necessary for megakaryocyte proliferation and maturation, as well as for thrombopoiesis. This protein is the ligand for MLP/C_MPL, the product of myeloproliferative leukemia virus oncogene. Mutations in this gene are the cause of thrombocythemia 1. Alternative promoter usage and differential splicing result in multiple transcript variants differing in the 5 UTR and/or coding region. Multiple AUG codons upstream of the main open reading frame (ORF) have been identified, and these upstream AUGs inhibit translation of the main ORF at different extent.

THPO has several biochemical functions, for example, cytokine activity, growth factor activity, hormone activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by THPO itself. We selected most functions THPO had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with THPO. You can find most of the proteins on our site.

THPO has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with THPO here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of THPO.
