Target Background

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.
Gene References into Functions
  1. The expression of TPO and c-Mpl was significantly decreased in the cITP group compared to the nITP group, suggesting that TPO and its receptor may play important roles in childhood cITP pathogenesis. PMID: 29313460
  2. FISH study showed no cytogenetic abnormalities in any of the analyzed cases. PMID: 16682284
  3. results confirm that TPO acts as an acute phase protein but exclude the possibility that it is uniquely responsible for thrombocytosis of inflammatory disorders, which might recognize in IL-6 a credible candidate as a cooperating factor. PMID: 18041648
  4. evidence for the presence of a low TPO gene expression transcript in B-CLL cells; early B-cell CLL circulating level of TPO does not provide a useful insight into the complex interrelationship of prognostic variables PMID: 18203013
  5. Thrombopoietin levels are increased in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome; TPO may have a role in thrombocytosis, which frequently develops from thrombocytopenia in SARS patients PMID: 18314161
  6. separate binding sites on the Mpl receptor for TPO and hNUDC identified PMID: 20529857
  7. Tensin2 is an important new mediator in TPO/c-Mpl pathway; Tensin2 becomes phosphorylated in a TPO dependent manner. PMID: 21527831
  8. perioperative TPO dynamics are associated with postoperative LD. Postoperative TPO levels were found to be lowest in high-risk patients (HCC patients undergoing major resection) but showed an independent predictive value. PMID: 25611592
  9. Data indicate thrombopoietin (TPO) as potential early prognostic biomarker in acute pancreatitis (AP) patients. PMID: 28079612
  10. These studies demonstrate that biallelic loss-of-function mutations in THPO cause bone marrow failure, which is unresponsive to transplant due to a hematopoietic cell-extrinsic mechanism. PMID: 28559357
  11. Genetically engineered mesenchymal stromal cells produce IL-3 and TPO to further improve human scaffold-based xenograft models PMID: 28456746
  12. High Thrombopoietin expression is associated with immune thrombocytopenia in pregnancy. PMID: 26840092
  13. Colorectal cancer tumor-initiating cells (TICs) expressing CD110, the thrombopoietin (TPO)-binding receptor, mediate liver metastasis. We show that TPO promotes metastasis of CD110+ TICs to the liver by activating lysine degradation. PMID: 26140605
  14. decreased TPO levels or decreased bone marrow production of platelets may not be a cause of thrombocytopenia in chronic hepatitis C PMID: 25728497
  15. WASP, RUNX1, and ANKRD26 genes are important for normal TPO signaling and the network underlying thrombopoiesis. PMID: 26175287

  17. The regulation of OCs by TPO highlights a novel therapeutic target for bone loss diseases and may be important to consider in the numerous hematologic disorders associated with alterations in TPO/c-mpl signaling PMID: 25656774
  18. TPO was greatly enhanced in HPT in comparison with ITP patients (958 +/- 659 and 11 +/- 27 pg/ml, p < 0.001). In the ITP group a reverse correlation was detected between TPO and glycocalicin (r = -0.373, p = 0.006). PMID: 25472766
  19. observations suggest that NRP-1 is involved in megakaryocytopoiesis through complex formation with PDGFRs, and that NRP-1-PDGFR-complexes may contribute to effective cellular functions mediated by TPO and PDGF in megakaryocytic cells PMID: 25744030
  20. An Arg->Cys substitution at residue 38 or residue 17 excluding the 21-AA signal peptide of the receptor binding domain was found in a family with aplastic anemia. Adding a 5th cysteine may disrupt normal disulfide bonding & receptor binding. PMID: 24085763
  21. increased plasma thrombopoietin levels were associated with a favorable prognosis of bone marrow failure and could, therefore, represent a reliable marker for a benign subset of myelodysplastic syndrome. PMID: 23403320
  22. Increased TPO levels may increase both platelet count and platelet size, resulting in more hemostatic tendency, which may contribute to the progression of ischemic stroke. PMID: 22327824
  23. Platelet count and serum thrombopoietin level as predictors for morbidity and/or mortality in thrombocytopenic neonates. PMID: 22980223

  30. pattern of megakaryocytopoiesis is associated with up-regulated thrombopoietin (TPO) signaling through mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and elevated levels of full-length GATA-1 and its targets PMID: 21304100
  31. Human thrombopoietin knockin mice efficiently support human hematopoiesis in vivo. PMID: 21262827
  32. Findings thus suggest that decreased thrombopoietin production accompanying liver dysfunction may be related to thrombocytopenia besides myelosuppression in anorexia nervosa with malnutrition. PMID: 19810087
