Inhibition of the met receptor tyrosine kinase signaling enhances the chemosensitivity of glioma cell lines to CDDP through activation of p38 MAPK pathway.


The Met receptor tyrosine kinase is known to be overexpressed in many solid tumors and plays a crucial role in tumor invasive growth and metastasis. In this study, we showed that hepatocyte growth factor-induced Met activation as well as Met-dependent downstream signaling of AKT and p44/42 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) could be efficiently blocked… (More)
