AMP case report: An unusual BRAF mutation in a patient with melanoma, February 2017

February 2017—An activating BRAF mutation is found in 40 to 60 percent of melanoma patients. BRAF (B-Raf proto-oncogene) encodes a protein-kinase that activates the MAP kinase/ERK signaling pathway, a pathway that regulates cell differentiation, growth, and survival. Another protein, NRAS, normally activates BRAF. A mutated BRAF, however, can act independently of NRAS and skew cell activity toward growth and survival and away from differentiation.
