Gene NRAS
Variant amp
Impact List none
Protein Effect no effect
Gene Variant Descriptions NRAS amplification indicates an increased number of copies of the NRAS gene. However, the mechanism causing the increase is unspecified.
Associated Drug Resistance

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

NRAS amp melanoma predicted - sensitive Binimetinib Preclinical - Pdx Actionable In a preclinical study, Mektovi (binimetinib) treatment resulted in reduced tumor growth and proliferation in two patient-derived xenograft (PDX) melanoma models with NRAS copy number gain and without BRAF or NRAS mutations (PMID: 29245078). 29245078
FGFR1 amp NRAS amp lung non-small cell carcinoma resistant Trametinib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, non-small cell lung carcinoma cells harboring both FGFR1 and NRAS amplification were resistant to Mekinist (trametinib) in culture (PMID: 28630215). 28630215
FGFR1 amp NRAS amp lung non-small cell carcinoma sensitive Infigratinib + Trametinib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, Infigratinib (BGJ398) and Mekinist (trametinib) combination treatment inhibited Erk signaling, resulting in growth inhibition in non-small cell lung carcinoma cells harboring both FGFR1 and NRAS amplification in culture (PMID: 28630215). 28630215
FGFR1 amp NRAS amp lung non-small cell carcinoma resistant Infigratinib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, amplification of NRAS was identified in a non-small cell lung cancer cell line harboring FGFR1 amplification that acquired resistance to Infigratinib (BGJ398) in culture (PMID: 28630215). 28630215
BRAF V600E NRAS amp colorectal cancer predicted - resistant Panitumumab + Vemurafenib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a clinical case study, a patient with BRAF V600E colorectal cancer developed progressive disease after achieving stable disease for 16 weeks with Vectibix (panitumumab) and Zelboraf (vemurafenib) combination treatment, NRAS amplification was identified as an acquired alteration at the time of progression (PMID: 28951457). 28951457
