Exogenous expression of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) in rat striatum by naked plasmid DNA.


Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a heterodimeric protein and shows mitogenic and morphogenic activities toward a variety of epithelial cells. There has been no immunohistochemical evidences for naked DNA mediated transgene expression of HGF into central nervous system. We initially demonstrated a naked plasmid mediated expression of HGF into rat striatum… (More)
