||Human HGF is expressed as a linear 697 amino acid polypeptide precursor glycoprotein. Proteolytic processing of this precursor generates the biologically active form of HGF, which consists of two polypeptide chains (α-chain and β-chain) held by a single d
||Recombinant Human Hepatocyte Growth Factor (rHu HGF), also known as scatter factor or hepatopoietin, is a mesenchymally-derived protein. It is a potent mitogen for mature parenchymal hepatocytes and acts as a growth factor for a broad spectrum of tissues and cell types. HGF signals through a transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor known as MET. Activities of HGF include induction of cell proliferation, motility, morphogenesis, inhibition of cell growth, and enhancement of neuron survival.

||Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per μg (1EU/μg).
||Greater than 98% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
||The lyophilized protein is stable for at least 2 years from date of receipt when kept at -20°C. Reconstituted HGF is stable for at least 3 months when stored in working aliquots with a carrier protein at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
