Direct and indirect interactions of MET with integrins, focal adhesion kinase PTK2 (FAK1), tensin-4 (TNS4) and GTPases RAP1 and RAC1, induce morphological changes that promote cell motility and play an important role in HGF-induced invasiveness of cancer cells (Weidner et al. 1993, Beviglia et al. 1999, Sakkab et al. 2000, Parr et al. 2001, Trusolino et al. 2001, Lamorte et al. 2002, Chen and Chen 2006, Watanabe et al. 2006, Muharram et al. 2014, Murray et al. 2014).
