c-MET

c-Met (METor MNNG HOS Transforming gene) is a proto-oncogene that encodes a protein known as hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR; RTK class X, HGF receptor family). It was originally identified as an oncogene activated in vitro after treatment of a human osteogenic sarcoma (HOS) cell line[1]. Currently, c-Met receives great interest for its role of aberrant signaling in tumorigenesis, particularly in the development of the invasive and metastatic phenotypes (see also Axon 2240). Signaling via the Met–HGF/SF pathway has been shown to lead to a wide range of biological activities including proliferation (mitosis), scattering (motility), and branching morphogenesis, embryological development, wound healing, tissue regeneration, angiogenesis, growth, invasion, and morphogenic differentiation[2].
