NRAS

What is NRAS? NRAS is a gene that provides instructions for making the NRAS protein, which acts as a molecular switch in cell signaling pathways. When activated by external signals, such as growth factors, the NRAS protein sends signals from the cell surface to the nucleus, influencing various cellular processes like cell growth, proliferation, and …

BRAF

BRAF is a gene that provides instructions for making the BRAF protein, a kinase enzyme that is part of the MAPK/ERK signaling pathway. In normal, healthy cells, this protein works with other proteins in the MAPK/ERK pathway to regulate cell growth and proliferation. However, a change in the BRAF gene can cause this protein to behave …
