Tight control of cell proliferation and morphogenesis in conjunction with programmed cell death (apoptosis) is required to ensure normal tissue patterning. Alterations that cause an imbalance of the cellular signals that control these events may promote cell growth, suppress apoptosis, and enhance cell invasion, resulting in oncogenesis. Many of these(More)
Constitutive activation of growth factor receptors through autocrine/paracrine mechanisms occurs frequently in human cancers and is thought to play an important role in carcinogenesis. We have demonstrated previously that hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a potent mitogenic factor for murine mammary carcinoma (SPI) cells in vitro. We report here an autocnne(More)
