Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF), also known as Hepatopoetin A and Scatter Factor, is a potent mitogen for epithelial cells. HGF has a molecular weight of 82-85 kDa. HGF stimulates the growth of hepatocytes, renal tubular epithelial cells, epidermal keratinocytes, epidermal melanocytes, Mv1Lu (mink lung epithelial cells) and BALB/MK (mouse keratinocytes). HGF inhibits the growth of B6/F1 (mouse melanoma) cells, KB (human squamous carcinoma) cells and HepG2 (human hepatoma) cells. The HGF gene spans approximately 70 kb and consists of 18 exons interrupted by 17 introns. The organization of the human HGF gene is highly homologous to that of human plasminogen. HGF maps to the long arm of chromosome 7, 7q21.1.
