RAS Oncoproteins

Therapeutic Vulnerabilities

Dr Adrienne Cox, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

RAS proteins function as binary on-off switches that regulate diverse cytoplasmic signaling networks. In cancer and developmental disorders (RASopathies), mutationally activated RAS proteins drive aberrant signal transduction. This webinar discusses the vulnerabilities of RAS that have been exploited for the development of pharmacologic inhibitors of RAS function.
