Medical Definition of Scatter factor

1. A motility factor (motogen) isolated from conditioned medium in which human fibroblasts have been grown. It causes colonies of epithelial and endothelial cells, in culture, to separate into single cells that move apart i.e. They scatter. It has been shown to be identical to human hepatocyte growth factor, but it is not mitogenic for all cell types.
