Progranulin (PGRN), also called proepithelin and PC cell-derived growth factor, is a singleprecursor protein of granulins which are a family of secreted, glycosylated peptides. It is awidely expressed pluripotent growth factor which plays a role in processes such asdevelopment, wound repair and inflammation by activating signaling cascades that control cellcycle progression and cell motility. Its function in the central nervous system is of interest, asmutations in the PGRN gene were found in cases of fronto-temporal degeneration (FTLD). Inaddition, PGRN has also been linked to tumorigenesis. Progranulin is a biomarker for FTLD,other types of Alzheimer‘s Disease (AD) and potentially for MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment).Additionally, PGRN is described as a new ligand of TNF receptors and a potential therapeuticagainst inflammatory disease like arthritis. Mouse Recombinant Progranulin fused to FLAG®at C-terminus produced in HEK is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain purified bystandard chromatographic techniques, containing 589 amino acids and having a molecularmass of ~70.0 kDa.
