26752517 GNLY delivers Gzms into three protozoan parasites (Trypanosoma cruzi, Toxoplasma gondii and Leishmania major), in which the Gzms generate superoxide and inactivate oxidative defense enzymes to kill the parasite.
26751807 serum GNLY is closely associated with the clinical characteristics of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and may be a potential biomarker for nasopharyngeal carcinoma
26314314 Studies indicate that cytotoxic mechanisms mediated by granulysin and TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand) seem to be less secondary effects on normal tissues.
26225678 High Granulysin expression is associated with Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma and Sezary Syndrome.
25644528 A three-way interaction between SNPs in HLA-DQ and GNLY was identified in terms of HBV clearance.
24906149 Human, but not rodent, cytotoxic granules also contain granulysin, an antimicrobial peptide in addition to granzymes; study shows that granulysin delivers granzymes into bacteria to kill diverse bacterial strains.
24269628 It was concluded taht granulysin induces apoptosis on hematological tumor cells and on cells from B-cell lymphocytic leukemia patients, opening the door to research on its use as a new anti-tumoral treatment.
24035442 Serum granulysin levels were significantly elevated in both acute and chronic alopecia areata patients.
23801887 suggested that the alteration of circulating granulysin has potential function in host immune response against TB and HIV/TB coinfection
23399514 study to determine: expression of GNLY at the gene and protein levels at the maternal-fetal interface, relationship(s) between GNLY and perforin, and GNLY secretion by stimulated NK cells
