Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Granulins have possible cytokine-like activity. They may play a role in inflammation, wound repair, and tissue remodeling.; FUNCTION
Gene References into Functions
  1. progranulin reduction might be the cause of multiple proteinopathies due to the accelerating accumulation of abnormal proteins including TDP-43 proteinopathy, tauopathy and alpha-synucleinopathy. PMID: 28473694
  2. Results suggest that serum PGRN levels are significantly higher in obese children in China and correlate significantly with obesity-related markers. Increased PGRN levels may be involved in the pathological mechanism of childhood obesity. PMID: 30151059
  3. Progranulin has a direct effect on tumor growth, migration, and invasion of human colon cancer cells. It may serve as a potential therapeutic target for human colon cancer. PMID: 30060789
