BRAF V600E (gain of function)

NRAS over exp (no effect)

Relevant Treatment Approaches


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. 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 on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "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.

BRAF V600E NRAS over exp colorectal cancer resistant Cetuximab + Vemurafenib Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, overexpression of wild-type NRAS in colorectal cancer cell lines harboring BRAF V600E induced Ras activation and Braf/Craf dimerization, conferred resistance to Erbitux (cetuximab) and Zelboraf (vemurafenib) combination treatment in culture and in cell line xenograft models (PMID: 28951457). 28951457
BRAF V600E NRAS over exp colorectal cancer sensitive BGB659 + Cetuximab Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, BGB659 and Erbitux (cetuximab) combination treatment demonstrated enhanced inhibition of Erk phosphorylation and growth in BRAF V600E colorectal cancer cell lines overexpressing Nras in culture (PMID: 28951457). 28951457
