Genes

HGF

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a gene that encodes a protein that is involved in cell growth, motility, and morphogenesis. The protein, also known as hepatocyte growth factor, functions through the activation of a tyrosine kinase signaling pathway. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift insertions are observed in cancers such as lung cancer, parathyroid cancer, and skin cancer.
