Profile Name KIT N505I
Gene Variant Detail

KIT N505I (gain of function)

Relevant Treatment Approaches KIT Inhibitor


  • 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"


  • 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.

KIT N505I melanoma sensitive KIT Inhibitor Sorafenib Preclinical Actionable In a preclinical study, KIT N505I induced phosphorylation of KIT, ERK, and AKT, and was inhibited by Nexavar (sorafenib) in cell culture of melanocytes, demonstrating sensitivity of N505I to sorafenib (PMID: 24317392). 24317392
KIT N505I melanoma predicted - sensitive KIT Inhibitor Imatinib Preclinical Actionable In a preclinical study, Gleevec (imatinib) decreased phosphorylation of KIT, AKT, and ERK in melanocytes expressing KIT N505I in culture (PMID: 24317392). 24317392
