Discover a Recombinant Protein Human Granulysin
GNLY is a member of the saposin-like protein (SAPLIP) family and is located in the cytotoxic granules of T cells (CD8), which are released upon antigen stimulation.
GNLY is an antimicrobial protein that kills intracellular pathogens, active against a broad range of microbes, including Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, fungi, and parasites. It creates holes in the target cell membrane and destroys it. It is expressed in cytolytic granules with perforin, a pore forming protein, and granzymes that are also involved in cytolysis. Kills Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
