Development of Granulin Derived Peptides as Wound Healing Agents

Granulins are a family of growth factor proteins, which generally contain six disulfide bonds and are found in most organisms. An orthologue of granulin from the human parasitic liver fluke Opisthorchis viverrini, known as Ov-GRN-1, induces angiogenesis and accelerates wound repair. However, recombinant Ov-GRN-1 production is complex, and poses an obstacle for clinical development.

We have developed pep…
