Functional Expression of HGF and Its Receptor in Human Colorectal Cancer
Background: Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) stimulates proliferation, migration and morphogenesis of epithelial cells by specific binding to its receptor c-met. Overexpression of HGF or c-met has beenExpand

C-met protooncogene expression and its regulation by cytokines in the regenerating pancreas and in pancreatic cancer cells.
BACKGROUND Activation of the receptor c-met stimulates motility, mitosis, morphogenesis, processes involved in organ regeneration, or progression of malignancies. In the present study we investigatedExpand

Mechanisms of Lectin (Phytohemagglutinin)-Induced Growth in Small Intestinal Epithelial Cells
Background/Aims: The lectin phytohemagglutinin is a mitogen for intestinal epithelial cells in vivo. The mechanisms of action are unknown and were therefore analyzed in vitro. Methods: HumanExpand
