Gene BRAF
Variant amp
Impact List none
Protein Effect no effect
Gene Variant Descriptions BRAF amplification indicates an increased number of copies of the BRAF 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.

BRAF V600X BRAF amp NRAS Q61K melanoma resistant Vemurafenib Clinical Study - Cohort Actionable In a clinical study, a melanoma patient harboring a BRAF V600 mutation developed resistant mutations, BRAF amplification and NRAS Q61K, during treatment with Zelboraf (vemurafenib) (PMID: 24265153). 24265153
BRAF V600E BRAF amp colorectal cancer resistant Cetuximab + Selumetinib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, colorectal cancer cells harboring BRAF V600E developed sustained activation of Mapk signaling and resistance to Koselugo (selumetinib) and Erbitux (cetuximab) combination treatment in culture, likely due to the acquired BRAF V600E amplification (PMID: 27312529). 27312529
BRAF V600E BRAF amp lung adenocarcinoma decreased response SCH772984 Preclinical - Patient cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, patient-derived BRAF V600E mutant lung adenocarcinoma cells that acquired resistance to Erk inhibitor through BRAF amplification were less sensitive to SCH772984 in culture (PMID: 28714990). 28714990
BRAF V600E BRAF amp colorectal cancer resistant Cetuximab + Vemurafenib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a clinical case study, a patient with BRAF V600E colorectal cancer developed progressive disease after a partial response lasting 16 weeks to Erbitux (cetuximab) and Zelboraf (vemurafenib) combination treatment, amplification of BRAF V600E was identified as an acquired alteration at the time of progression (PMID: 28951457). 28951457
BRAF V600E BRAF amp colorectal cancer resistant Cetuximab + Vemurafenib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, colorectal cancer cells harboring BRAF V600E that acquired BRAF V600E amplification and subsequent resistance to Erbitux (cetuximab) and Selumetinib (AZD6244) combination treatment were resistant to combination therapy consisting of Erbitux (cetuximab) and Zelboraf (vemurafenib) in culture (PMID: 27312529). 27312529
BRAF V600E BRAF 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 a partial response lasting 24 weeks to Vectibix (panitumumab) and Zelboraf (vemurafenib) combination treatment, amplification of BRAF V600E was identified as an acquired alteration at the time of progression (PMID: 28951457). 28951457
BRAF V600E BRAF amp colorectal cancer resistant SCH772984 Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, colorectal cancer cells harboring BRAF V600E that acquired BRAF V600E amplification and subsequent resistance to Erbitux (cetuximab) and Selumetinib (AZD6244) combination treatment were resistant to SCH772984 in culture (PMID: 27312529). 27312529
BRAF V600E BRAF amp lung adenocarcinoma sensitive Dabrafenib + SCH772984 + Trametinib Preclinical - Pdx Actionable In a preclinical study, combination of Tafinlar (dabrafenib), SCH772984, and Mekinist (trametinib) resulted in durable tumor inhibition in cell line xenograft models of BRAF V600E mutated lung adenocarcinoma cells that acquired resistance to Erk inhibitors through BRAF amplification (PMID: 28714990). 28714990
