Purification of human erythropoietin to homogeneity by a rapid five-step procedure.


Human urinary erythropoietin (Ep) has been purified using a simple five-step procedure to yield preparations with potencies of 80,000 U/mg in 25% yield. The five steps involve: (1) affinity chromatography on CM Affi-Gel Blue, (2) chromatofocusing, (3) wheat germ lectin (or hydroxylapatite) chromatography, (4) reverse-phase high-performance liquid… (More)
