MA5-14160 targets Hepatocyte Growth Factor in WB and ICC/IF applications and shows reactivity with Human and Mouse samples.
The MA5-14160 immunogen is recombinant human HGF protein.
Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF), also known as Scatter Factor (SF) or Hepatopoietin A. Membrane receptor for HGF/SF is the product of the proto-oncogene c-met, a tyrosine kinase. HGF/SF is a pleiotropic growth factor which is produced by mesodermally derived cells, such as Kupffer cells/macrophages, endothelial cells, or hepatic fat-storing cells.
