K252a inhibits the oncogenic properties of Met, the HGF receptor

The ATP analog K252a is a potent inhibitor for receptor tyrosine kinases of the Trk family. Here we show that nanomolar concentrations of K252a prevent HGF-mediated scattering in MLP-29 cells (30 nM), reduce Met-driven proliferation in GTL-16 gastric carcinoma cells (100 nM), and cause reversion in NIH3T3 fibroblasts transformed by the oncogenic form of the… (More)
