Chemotherapy or radiotherapy often cause mucosal damage in the gut (gut mucositis) in cancer patients. As a step to investigate mechanisms underlying subsequent intestinal repair, we have examined the expression profiles of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and its receptor c-met, two molecules previously implicated in tissue repair, in comparison to the(More)
In this study we have investigated both the expression of c-met in cultured human mesangial cells and the proliferative effect of HGF on these cells. RNAse protection analysis using a c-met riboprobe showed c-met to be expressed and further that this expression was unaffected by the glucose concentration or osmolality of the media.
