General description

Erythropoietin (Epo) is a glycoprotein consisting of one 165-amino acid single-chain polypeptide with two internal disulfide bonds. When fully glycosylated, the molecular weight of Epo is approximately 34 kDa. Normally produced by the liver and kidney, Epo is the principle regulator of red blood cell production by stimulating the division and differentiation of bone marrow erythroid progenitor cells in response to anemia and hypoxia.


Reacts with human Erythropoietin (Epo).


Recombinant human Epo.


Detect Erythropoietin using this Anti-Erythropoietin Antibody, clone 1C8 validated for use in ELISA, IF & WB.

For the determination of Epo concentration in the range of 2-200 ng/mL. Use at 5 ug/mL to coat plate.

Immunosorbent preparation

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.
