Abstract:K-Ras is the most frequently mutated protein in human tumors. Activating K-Ras mutations drive cancer initiation, progression and drug resistance, directly leading to nearly a million deaths per year. To understand the mechanisms by which mutations alter K-Ras function, we need to understand their effects on protein dynamics. However, despite decades of research, how oncogenic mutations in K-Ras alter its conformation and dynamics remain to be understood. Here, we present how the most recurrent K-Ras oncogenic… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
