||Recombinant human HDGF was expressed inE.coliand purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. MW = 11.5 kDa (100aa).
||Hepatoma-derived growth factor isoform a, also known as HDGF, belongs to the hepatoma-derived growth factor family. HDGF was originally identified as a secreted mitogen from the human hepatoma cell line Huh-7. This nuclear targeted vascular smooth muscle cell mitogen is a heparin-binding protein that is highly expressed in tumor cells where it stimulates proliferation. HDGF is also reported to be involved in organ development and lung remodeling after injury by promoting proliferation of lung epithelial cells.
