RON (Recepteur d'Origine Nantaise) is a tyrosine kinase receptor for MSP (Macrophage Stimulating Protein) that belongs to the hepatocyte growth factor receptor family. RON is synthesized as a single chain glycosylated polypeptide of 1400 amino acids that is cleaved upon maturation into a 150 kDa beta-subunit with the kinase activity and a 40 kDa alpha-chain. Both chains are linked by disulfide bonds and the proper arrangement of the alpha and beta heterodimer is necessary for biological activity of RON. MSP induces the tyrosine kinase activity of RON, triggering a cascade of intracellular signaling that leads to DNA synthesis. However, RON activation in mouse erythroleukemia cells results in apoptosis. The replacement of autophosphorylation sites Y1330 and Y1337 abolishes both the mitogenic and apoptotic effects of MSP. Therefore, autophosphorylation at Y1330 and Y1337 is required for RON's biological activity. PLCgamma, Shc, Grb2, p61, and p65 associate with RON. Although widely expressed, RON is particularly abundant in epithelial tissues, lung, brain, adrenal glands, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, and testis.
