"Understanding the Versatile Cytokine Pleiotrophin"

Pleiotrophin (PTN) is a versatile cytokine involved in neural development, tissue regeneration, inflammation and cancer metastasis. It has a high affinity for the polysaccharide glycosaminolglycan (GAG) found on proteoglycan receptors, but is also known to bind non-proteoglycan receptors. Despite its importance in biology, very little is known about structural interactions of PTN with these receptors.
