MPL (human)

MPL a hematopoietic receptor for thrombopoietin. Thrombopoietin is the major regulator of megakaryocytopoiesis and platelet formation. Dimerizes upon binding of thrombopoietin, leading to its phosphorylation and activation of JAKs and STATs. May represent a regulatory molecule specific for TPO-R-dependent immune responses. Two splice-variant isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
