Protein Coding Gene : Kras Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog

Primary Identifier  MGI:96680 Organism  Mus musculus
Chromosome  6 NCBI Gene Number  16653
Mgi Type  protein coding gene
description  FUNCTION: Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)

Exhibits GTPase activity. Involved in several processes, including endocrine signaling; forebrain astrocyte development; and modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early embryo; eye; genitourinary system; and gut. Used to study several diseases, including Noonan syndrome 3; carcinoma (multiple); juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia; lung cancer; and prostate cancer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Noonan syndrome (multiple); arteriovenous malformations of the brain; cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome (multiple); gastrointestinal system cancer (multiple); and hematologic cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human KRAS (KRAS proto-oncogene, GTPase).
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit embryonic lethality, decreased fetal growth, pericardial edema, anemia, and liver hypoplasia. Mice heterozygous for various knock-in alleles exhibit increased tumorigenesis. [provided by MGI curators]
