From Molecular Medicine to Patient: A Success Story Called RANKL

At the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) in Austria, 13 independent groups work on various research topics in genetics and biomedicine. One of the key focus areas of Josef Penninger, scientific director of IMBA, is the various functions of the membrane protein RANKL – from its discovery, to the development of a new drug, which is now prescribed to thousands of patients every year.

Penninger was the first to find genetic evidence that RANKL is the master regulator of adequate bone metabolism by activating osteoclasts, which are critically involved in bone resorption. Overexpression of RANKL is implicated in a variety of degenerative bone diseases such as osteoporosis. RANKL is also known for acting on breast, prostate and skin cancer cells through the RANK receptor.
