  Megakaryocyte - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Megakaryocytes account for less than 1% of bone marrow cells but can be 10 to 15 times larger than a typical red blood cell.(Compare to other cells) The nucleus of the megakaryocyte is very large and lobulated, which, under a light microscope, can give the false impression that there are several nuclei.
Megakaryocyte function is determined by a large number of cytokines, including thrombopoietin.
The developmental stages of the megakaryocyte is:CFU-Me (pluripotential hemopoietic stem cell or hemocytoblast) -> megakaryoblast -> promegakaryocyte -> megakaryocyte.

 Scientists uncover novel role for estrogen in bone marrow
Platelets circulate in the bloodstream to facilitate clotting and halt bleeding.
A mature megakaryocyte extends long cytoplasmic processes (termed proplatelets) from its cell surface that, in one of the most dramatic morphological changes known to cell biologists, simultaneously fragments into thousands of new platelet cells.
Further work demonstrated a crucial role for estradiol in proplatelet formation, as evidenced by their finding that the addition of exogenous estradiol increased proplatelt formation by more than %50, while the inhibition of estradiol receptors blocked proplatelet formation in live mice.

Thrombopoietin requires additional megakaryocyte-active cytokines for optimal ex vivo expansion of megakaryocyte precursor cells.A moderate (approximately sevenfold) expansion of megakaryocyte progenitor cells (colony-forming unit-megakaryocyte) occurs in the presence of IL-1, -6, -11, S, and the addition of TPO to this cocktail yields an approximately 17-fold expansion.
We conclude that early proliferative events in megakaryocyte development in vitro are regulated by multiple cytokines, and that TPO markedly affects these early developmental steps.
However, by itself, TPO is neither necessary nor sufficient to generate a full proliferative/maturational in vitro response within the megakaryocyte compartment.

Our data suggests the interaction of these two transcription factors is critical for the expression of megakaryocyte-specific proteins and, probably also for differentiation of megakaryocytes.
The studies of gene regulation of megakaryocyte differentiation will result in a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in platelet production and may also lead to improved diagnosis and management of platelet disorders, including post-chemotherapy and radiotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia which is a serious complication of cancer treatment.
