Abstract

We have quantified mRNA for the hepatocyte growth factor and its putative receptor the c-met proto-oncogene protein product, in a series of human primary and secondary liver tumours and adjacent non-neoplastic liver. In all hepatocellular cancers, hepatocyte growth factor 6 kb mRNA expression was less (mean 23.93%±6.33% S.E.M. n=7) in the tumours than in the adjacent normal liver. Both relative over- and under-expression of c-met transcripts were found in tumour tissue compared to non-neoplastic liver. Thus hepatocellular cancer tissue does not over-express mRNA for hepatocyte growth factor, though this growth factor might play a role in hyperproliferative states leading to liver cancer.
