IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), also known as Hepatopoietin A, HPTA and SF, is mitogenic for a variety of cell types, including endothelial and epithelial cells, melanocytes, and keratinocytes. It is identical to scatter factor, a fibroblast-derived soluble factor that promotes the dissociation of epithelial and vascular endothelial cell colonies in monolayer cultures by stimulating cell migration. Hepatocyte growth factor regulates cell growth, cell motility, and morphogenesis by activating a tyrosine kinase signaling cascade after binding to the proto-oncogenic c-Met receptor.  Hepatocyte growth factor is secreted by mesenchymal cells and acts as a multi-functional cytokine on cells of mainly epithelial origin. Its ability to stimulate mitogenesis, cell motility, and matrix invasion gives it a central role in angiogenesis, tumorogenesis, and tissue regeneration. HGF has been implicated in a variety of cancers, including of the lungs, pancreas, thyroid, colon, and breast.
