Erythropoietin, or EPO, is a glycoprotein primarily produced in the kidney. It stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of erythroid progenitor cells and is the principal regulator of red blood cell production. Kidney cells increase EPO production in response to hypoxia or anemia.
Used in the study of red blood cell growth and differentiation.
