Erythropoietin is a member of the EPO/TPO family. It regulates red cell production by promoting erythroid differentiation and initiating hemoglobin synthesis. This protein also has neuroprotective activity against a variety of potential brain injuries and antiapoptotic functions in several tissue types.

  • High purity: no interference from other proteins or contaminants
  • High biological activity: more results with less protein
  • Proven compatibility: Gibco proteins bioassayed with Gibco media
  • High Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein: to help ensure Gibco growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein
  • High Biological Activity: in-house activity testing of Gibco Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, anti-viral, and protease assays; specific activity is determined by in vivo bioassay measuring dose-dependent increase in reticulocyte count with normocythaemic mice
  • Proven Compatibility: Gibco proteins are bioassayed with Gibco media
