thrombopoietin

A hormone responsible for the growth of colonies of megakaryocytes and the production of platelets. The existence of thrombopoietin has been suspected for 30 years but was realized only in 1994. In 1997 the results of a trial of polyethylene-conjugated genetically-engineered (recombinant) thrombopoietin-described as recombinant human megakatyocyte growth and development factor (PEGrHuMGDF)-was published. It was found to have a powerful stimulatory effect on PLATELET production. Thrombopoietin is the ligand for the cytokine receptor Mpl.

thrombopoietin

an α2-globulin, a hormone involved in the differentiation and maturation of platelets but thought to be responsible for regulating the supply of platelets.
