Significance of PTMs HGF is biosynthesized as a prepro-form of 728 amino acids, including a signal sequence and both α- and β-chains. After cleavage of a signal peptide of the first 31 amino acids, a single-chain HGF is further cleaved between Arg494 and Val495, and this processing is coupled to the conversion of biologically inactive pro-HGF to active HGF.
