C-Met Library

MET is a tyrosine kinase receptor for hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), primarily expressed on epithelial cells; the activation of MET induces several biological responses relevant for the development and growth of many human cancers. Several human malignancies present altered expression of MET and this is usually associated with poor prognosis and aggressive phenotype. MET inhibitors are of great clinical interest because of the extensive crosstalk of the HGF/MET axis with many other signaling pathways, including growth factor-dependent pathways (like PI3K/AKT/mTOR,RAS/RAF/ERK) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) axis.
