Protein characteristics of thrombopoietin.


Thrombopoietin (TPO) was purified from irradiated thrombocytopenic rat plasma. In the process of purification, some biochemical and biological characteristics were investigated. Rat plasma TPO was extremely hydrophobic and exhibited multiple peaks of activity on gel filtration. Both the low and high molecular weight fractions were separately subjected to… (More)
