A cDNA for the thrombopoietin has been cloned by several groups. The recombinant thrombopoietin has been reported to stimulate the megakaryocytopoiesis and thrombopoiesis. Little is known regarding the molecular basis of its effects. To elucidate the molecular mechanism involved in signal transduction, we have investigated the effects of thrombopoietin on platelet tyrosine phosphorylation. We report here that thrombopoietin induced time- and dose-dependent tyrosine phosphorylation of several proteins including Janus kinase 2 (Jak2) and a 52-kD protein, Shc, in human blood platelets. Both Jak2 and Shc were tyrosine phosphorylated within 15 seconds after stimulation. The tyrosine phosphorylation of Jak2 was accompanied by increased kinase activity, whereas Shc tyrosine phosphorylation induced its association with a 25-kD protein, Grb2. Thus, our data suggest that Jak2, Shc, and Grb2 may be involved in signal transduction after ligand binding to c-mpl in human platelets.
