HGF (Hepatocyte growth factor) is a multifunctional cytokine that plays important roles in cell proliferation, survival, motility and morphogenesis. HGF protects the epithelium, neurons and cardiomyocytes during organ diseases; this protective effect is mediated through anti-apoptotic signals via inhibition of caspase-3 activity or induction of anti-apoptotic molecules. Secreted by cells of mesenchymal origin, HGF is the specific ligand for the tyrosine-kinase receptor c-MET (cellular mesenchymal-epithelial transition), also called MET, which is expressed in different types of epithelial, endothelial and hematopoietic progenitor cells. Aberrantly activated MET/HGF signaling correlates with tumorigenesis and metastasis, and is regarded as a target for novel anti-cancer treatments.Product Details

- Heterodimer (alpha and beta chains). Pro-HGF has 728 amino acids, the predicted molecular weight is approximately 83 kD. The alpha and beta chains contain 463 and 234 amino acids and have a predicted molecular mass of approximately 53.6 and 26 kD respec
Mesenchymal cells, liver sinusoidal endothelial, and macrophages.
- Stimulates epithelial cell proliferation, motility, morphogenesis and angiogenesis. Hypoxia and hyperglycemia suppress HGF production. Also, TGF-β and angiotensin-II depress HGF production in vitro.
