KI RAS ONCOGENE Meaning and Definition

  1. Ki ras Oncogene:

    Ki ras (Kirsten ras) is a human oncogene that belongs to the Ras gene family. It encodes a protein known as the K-Ras protein, which plays a crucial role in cell signaling pathways that regulate cell division, growth, and survival. When the Ki ras gene is mutated, it becomes an oncogene, promoting the development of cancerous tumors.

    The Ki ras oncogene is frequently mutated in various types of cancer, including lung, colorectal, pancreatic, and ovarian cancers. These mutations typically result in a constitutively active K-Ras protein, meaning that it is continuously "switched on" and constantly sends signals for cell growth and division, even in the absence of normal regulatory signals. This uncontrolled cell proliferation can lead to the formation of tumors and the spread of cancer.

    The Ki ras oncogene is therefore considered a driver mutation in cancer, as its activation or mutation is crucial for the initiation and progression of the disease. It is often used as a biomarker to predict prognosis, response to treatment, and guide therapeutic decisions in cancer patients.

    Understanding the mechanisms of action and targeting strategies for the Ki ras oncogene has been an area of intense research, aiming to develop novel therapies that specifically inhibit its activity and suppress tumor growth.
