Gene: EPO (erythropoietin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EPO
Name: erythropoietin
CRRD ID: 735849
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity and erythropoietin receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of ion transport; regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to cell surface and extracellular space. Implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetic angiopathy; familial erythrocytosis 5; ischemia (multiple); and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Biomarker of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; anemia; breast cancer; eye disease (multiple); and glucose metabolism disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
