PTPN11 (SHP2), recruited to activated MET receptor through GAB1, is phosphorylated in response to HGF treatment, although phosphorylation sites and direct MET involvement have not been examined (Schaeper et al. 2000, Duan et al. 2006). Phosphorylation of PTPN11 in response to HGF treatment is required for the recruitment and activation of sphingosine kinase SPHK1, which may play a role in HGF-induced cell scattering (Duan et al. 2006). While PTPN11 promotes MAPK3/1 (ERK1/2) signaling downstream of MET, it can also dephosphorylate MET on unidentified tyrosine residues (Furcht et al. 2014).
