Description

Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF), also known as Hepatopoietin A and Scatter Factor, is a dimeric molecule composed of the ?-subunit and beta-subunit, linked by a disulfide bond. It is secreted as a single inactive polypeptide and this pro-petide is cleaved by serine proteases into alpha- and beta-chains. HGF is reported to be a hepatrophic factor and acts as a growth factor for a wide variety of tissues and cell types. Its functions include induction of cell proliferation, motility, morphogenesis, inhibition of cell growth, and enhancement of neuron survival. The protein is secreted by mesenchymal cells and, after binding to the proto-oncogenic c-Met receptor, activates a tyrosine kinase signaling cascade. Hypoxia and hyperglycemia suppress HGF production.
