    at STAGE
  • two intracellular cytokine receptor box motifs containing cysteine residues receptor, transducing exclusive signals in embryonic and fetal hematopoietic cells; within the Mpl-EC domain 1 (Mpl-EC-D1), AAs 102251 were strongly involved in ligand binding (TPO and NUDC- binding to the AA region from 206 to 251)
  • the WSXWS motif, participating in the interaction between MPL and NUDC, and may play a role in stabilizing the conformation of the receptor during cytokine binding

    basic FUNCTION
  • may be a regulatory molecule specific for TPOR dependent immune responses
  • playing a specific role in early embryonic or fetal hematopoietic progenitors and stem cells
  • positive-selection marker for the isolation of cancer stem cells in some case of T-caute lymphoblastic leukemia (Yamazaki 2009)
    a component
  • protein constituent of transmembrane
    small molecule
    protein . regulated by RUNX1, both positively and negatively by changing the binding partner according to cell types
  • receptor of thrombopoietin
  • interacts with NUDC
  • following commitment to megakaryocyte differentiation, the H3K27 demethylase KDM6B up-regulation influences both ITGA2B and MPL expression
  • CLASP2-mediated stabilization of microtubules is required for proper attachment, homing, and maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells, and this is necessary to sustain MPL transcription
  • association between ATP5F1D and the Aa98-113 domain of MPL (the dissociation of ATP5F1D from MPL after TPO stimulation suggests that ATP5F1D may be a new component of TPO signaling
