Recombinant Human Hepatocyte Growth Factor/HGF/Hepatopoietin-A (C-6His)
Recombinant Human Hepatocyte Growth Factor is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Gln32-Ser728 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CJ72
BackgroundHepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF) is a paracrine cellular growth, motility and morphogenic factor. It belongs to the peptidase S1 family and Plasminogen subfamily, contains 4 kringle domains, 1 PAN domain and 1 peptidase S1 domain. HGF regulates cell growth, cell motility, and morphogenesis by activating a tyrosine kinase signaling cascade after binding to the proto-oncogenic c-Met receptor. HGF is secreted by mesenchymal cells and acts as a multi-functional cytokine on cells of mainly epithelial origin. Its ability to stimulate mitogenesis, cell motility, and matrix invasion gives it a central role in angiogenesis, tumorogenesis, and tissue regeneration.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM Tris,150mM NaCl,pH8.0.
