Gene: Epo (erythropoietin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Epo
Name: erythropoietin
Description: Exhibits protein kinase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including embryo implantation; erythrocyte differentiation; and hemoglobin biosynthetic process. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetic angiopathy; familial erythrocytosis 5; ischemia (multiple); and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including egg cylinder; embryo mesenchyme; embryo mesoderm; nervous system; and placenta. Orthologous to human EPO (erythropoietin).
Type: protein-coding
