Analysis of thrombopoietin and c-mpl expression in a child with essential thrombocythemia.

Abstract

The pathogenesis of the increased number of megakaryocytes and thrombocytosis in essential thrombocythemia (ET) is still unknown. We examined the expression of c-mpl, a receptor of thrombopoietin (TPO), and its signaling molecules in a patient with ET. An 8-year-old girl showed a high platelet count and an increased number of bone marrow megakaryocytes… (More)
