A-Raf proto-oncogene, serine/threonine kinase (ARAF) is a gene that encodes a protein serine/threonine kinase. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

ARAF is altered in 1.44% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, and high grade ovarian serous adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

ARAF GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in ARAF are ARAF Mutation (1.09%), ARAF Loss (0.31%), ARAF Amplification (0.16%), ARAF R255fs (0.09%), and ARAF P8fs (0.04%) [3].
