Hypoxia: This is a very complex process. The simplest answer is: hypoxia (low oxygen tension, anemia) stimulates HIF production (hopoxia-inducible factor) which then stimulates epo release from the kidney. Another protein called VHL inhibits HIF action on epo (negative regulator). Mutation of VHL can cause excessive epo release, resulting in congenital erythrocytosis (a rare genetic disorder). ...Read more

Erythropoietin also known as epo, is a hormone that controls erythropoiesis, or red blood cell production. ...Read more
