A 88-kDa progranulin, also called proepithelin and PC cell-derived growth factor, is a single precursor protein of granulins which are a family of secreted, glycosylated peptides that are cleaved from a single precursor protein with 7.5 repeats of a highly conserved 12-cysteine granulin/epithelin motif. Granulins are a variety of active, 6 kDa peptides and named granulin A (epithelin 1), granulin B (epithelin 2), granulin C, etc. Both the peptides and intact progranulin protein regulate cell growth. However, different members of the granulin protein family may act as inhibitors, stimulators, or have dual actions on cell growth. Granulin family members are important in normal development, wound healing, and tumorigenesis.


Progranulin Human Recombinant produced in HEK is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 1-593 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 74kDa. The Progranulin is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.


HEK 293 cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.


The protein contains 1xPBS.


It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Progranulin in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.


Lyophilized Progranulin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution PGRN should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C.

For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).

Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.


Greater than 98.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

Activates phospho-ERK1/2 in neuronal mouse P19 cells and regulates food intake and body weight.
