|Title||Inhibition of RAS function through targeting an allosteric regulatory site.|
|Journal||Nature chemical biology|
|Abstract Text||RAS GTPases are important mediators of oncogenesis in humans. However, pharmacological inhibition of RAS has proved challenging. Here we describe a functionally critical region, located outside the effector lobe of RAS, that can be targeted for inhibition. We developed NS1, a synthetic binding protein (monobody) that bound with high affinity to both GTP- and GDP-bound states of H-RAS and K-RAS but not N-RAS. NS1 potently inhibited growth factor signaling and oncogenic H-RAS- and K-RAS-mediated signaling and transformation but did not block oncogenic N-RAS, BRAF or MEK1. NS1 bound the α4-β6-α5 region of RAS, which disrupted RAS dimerization and nanoclustering and led to blocking of CRAF-BRAF heterodimerization and activation. These results establish the importance of the α4-β6-α5 interface in RAS-mediated signaling and define a previously unrecognized site in RAS for inhibiting RAS function.|

|NS1||HRAS Inhibitor 1 KRAS Inhibitor 7||NS1 is a synthetic monobody that binds to GTP and GDP states of HRAS and KRAS, thereby inhibiting RAS dimerization and subsequent RAF activity, which may result in inhibition of cell transformation (PMID: 27820802, PMID: 29072601).|

|HRAS||R135A||missense||unknown||HRAS R135A does not lie within any known functional domains of the Hras protein (UniProt.org). R135A results in impaired GTP-HRAS downstream signaling when combined with R128A (PMID: 18273062), and is associated with resistance to NS1 (PMID: 27820802), but has not been fully biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Hras protein function is unknown.||Y|
|HRAS||R135K||missense||unknown||HRAS R135K does not lie within any known functional domains of the Hras protein (UniProt.org). R135K is predicted to disrupt the allosteric interaction within Hras by molecular dynamics simulation (PMID: 29072601), and is associated with resistance to NS1 (PMID: 27820802), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Hras protein function is unknown.||Y|
