Mutations causing truncations of the cytoplasmic domain of the human erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) result in a dominantly inherited disorder—primary familial congenital polycythemia. This disorder is characterized by increased numbers of erythrocytes (polycythemia) and by in vitro hypersensitivity of erythroid precursors to erythropoietin. The consequences(More)
Mutations of the truncated cytoplasmic domain of human erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) result in gain-of-function of erythropoietin (EPO) signaling and a dominantly inherited polycythemia, primary familial and congenital polycythemia (PFCP). We interrogated the unexplained transient absence of perinatal polycythemia observed in PFCP patients using an animal(More)
