Problem

What is teh effect of a ras mutation that hyperactivates its GTPase activity?

A. promote cancer development

B. prevent cancer development


Solution

The ras gene is a proto-oncogene, a gene with a protein product that stimulate normal cell growth and division. Its product, the Ras protein, is a G protein that receives a signal from a growth factor receptor and transmits the signal to a protein kinase cascade, ultimately leading to cell cycle stimulation.
