The following EPO gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the EPO gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

||REVIEWED REFSEQ: This record has been curated by NCBI staff. The
reference sequence was derived from X02157.1 and S65458.1.
This sequence is a reference standard in the RefSeqGene project.
On Apr 6, 2005 this sequence version replaced gi:4503588.
Summary: This gene is a member of the EPO/TPO family and encodes a
secreted, glycosylated cytokine composed of four alpha helical
bundles. The protein is found in the plasma and 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. [provided by
