Hepatocyte Growth Factor/Scatter Factor

Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) is a mitogen of liver cells or hepatocytes that was discovered more than 25 years ago. Produced by stromal cells, HGF exerts its biological effects through its receptor, c-Met. HGF-c-Met axis mediates the mesenchymal-epithelial transitions during organ development. HGF stimulates proliferation of epithelial cells, migration, morphogenesis and angiogenesis in various organs. Organ regeneration, self-repair of liver, kidneys, lungs and so on are dependent on sufficient levels of HGF; lack of HGF results in organ failure. Studies also indicate active role for HGF in control of tumor metastasis.
Scatter factor, discovered as a protein derived from human embryonic fibroblasts, is identical to HGF.
