Erythropoietin (EPO) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. 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.

—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® mediaHigh Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Erythropoietin is one of more than 250 Gibco® recombinant proteins available from Life Technologies. 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, antiviral, and protease assays. Erythropoietin (EPO) 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. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.See our selection of recombinant Gibco® growth factors
