EPO

A gene on chromosome 7q22 that encodes erythropoietin, a secreted, glycosylated cytokine found in the plasma, which regulates red cell production by promoting erythroid differentiation and initiating haemoglobin synthesis. Erythropoietin plays a neuroprotective role in response to brain injury and is antiapoptotic.

Molecular pathology
Genetic variability of EPO has been linked to microvascular complications of diabetes type 2, including diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy leading to end-stage renal disease, and neuropathy
