The scatter factors, which include hepatocyte growth factor and macrophage stimulating protein, stand out from other cytokines because of their uncommon biological properties. In addition to promoting cell growth and protection from apoptosis, they are involved in the control of cell dissociation, migration into extracellular matrices, and a unique process of differentiation called 'branching morphogenesis'. Through the concerted regulation of these complex phenomena, scatter factors promote… CONTINUE READING
