Endothelial-mesenchymal transition (EndMT) not only occurs during embryonic development, but also contributes to various diseases including cardiovascular diseases, fibrosis, and even cancer. However, the specific molecular biological mechanism and relationship of related pathways have not been fully elucidated. This study aims to explore the inhibitory effect of HGF on EndMT and the molecular mechanism of Notch signal in this process.

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) and Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) both have tyrosine kinase receptors (EGFR and c-Met) which upon binding, activates and regulates many important cellular processes such...
Endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndMT) is closely related to the pathogenesis of various diseases, including cardiac fibrosis. Transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 strongly induces EndMT, and s...
Endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndMT) plays an important role in the progression of cardiac fibrosis but its mechanism and treatment need to be further understood. Herein, we have found that m...
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and its receptor MET are expressed in the salivary glands during developmental stages and tumor formation; however, the function of HGF in injured salivary gland tissues...
Stress-induced premature senescence (SIPS), a state of cell growth arrest due to various stimuli, is implicated in the pathogeneses of hepatic fibrogenesis. Progerin, a permanently farnesylated mutant...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether recombinant human hepatocyte growth factor is safe and effective in the treatment of fulminant and late-onset hepatic failure.
To observe the changes of plasma hepatocyte growth factor and soluble receptor s-Met levels in patients with sepsis, and to explore its clinical significance.
PF-02341066 may work in cancer by blocking the cell growth, migration and invasion of tumor cells. PF-02341066 is a new class of drugs called c-Met/Hepatocyte growth factor receptor tyros...
The hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represents more than 5% of all human malignancies, with more than 500,000 deaths per year (1). In Campania region, mortality for HCC is 2 times higher th...
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a serious gastrointestinal disorder that primarily affects preterm infants. About 10% of babies less than 32 weeks gestation at birth will develop it. O...
A hepatocyte nuclear factor that is closely related to HEPATOCYTE NUCLEAR FACTOR 1-ALPHA but is only weakly expressed in the LIVER. Mutations in hepatocyte nuclear factor 1-beta are associated with renal CYSTS and MATURITY-ONSET DIABETES MELLITUS type 5.
A transcription factor that regulates the expression of a large set of hepatic proteins including SERUM ALBUMIN; beta-fibrinogen; and ALPHA 1-ANTITRYPSIN. It is composed of hetero- or homo-dimers of HEPATOCYTE NUCLEAR FACTOR 1-ALPHA and HEPATOCYTE NUCLEAR FACTOR 1-BETA.
Multifunctional growth factor which regulates both cell growth and cell motility. It exerts a strong mitogenic effect on hepatocytes and primary epithelial cells. Its receptor is PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEINS C-MET.
A fibroblast growth factor that preferentially activates FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 4. It was initially identified as an androgen-induced growth factor and plays a role in regulating growth of human BREAST NEOPLASMS and PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS.
A onecut transcription factor that regulates expression of GENES involved in EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT of the PANCREAS and LIVER.
