Multiple roles for hepatocyte growth factor in sympathetic neuron development

F MainaA M Davies


We have studied the role of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)/Met signaling in the development of sympathetic neuroblasts and neurons. Anti-HGF antibodies reduced the number of sympathetic neuroblasts that differentiated into neurons, but neither anti-HGF antibodies nor HGF affected neuroblast proliferation. Anti-HGF antibodies also reduced the survival of neuroblasts but not sympathetic neurons. HGF greatly enhanced the neurite outgrowth of NGF-dependent sympathetic neurons throughout development. These in vitro effects of anti-HGF antibodies and HGF were abolished by a disabling mutation of Met, the HGF receptor tyrosine kinase. The Met mutation also increased sympathetic neuroblast apoptosis in vivo. Because Met and HGF are expressed in sympathetic ganglia throughout development, it is possible that the multiple effects of HGF/Met signaling on sympathetic neuroblasts and neurons occur in part by an autocrine mechanism.

Cell Signaling by Tyrosine Kinases

Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) are the high-affinity cell surface receptors for many polypeptide growth factors, cytokines, and hormones. RTKs have been shown not only to be key regulators of normal cellular processes but also to have a critical role in the development and progression of many types of cancer. Discover the latest research on cell signaling and RTK here.

Brain developing: Influences & Outcomes

This feed focuses on influences that affect the developing brain including genetics, fetal development, prenatal care, and gene-environment interactions. Here is the latest research in this field.


Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis
