Synonyms [1]

HRAS (Harvey rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog) encodes the GTPase HRas protein, one of three human RAS proteins. RAS proteins are small GTPases that are central mediators downstream of growth factor receptor signaling and therefore critical for cell proliferation, survival, and differentiation. HRAS is implicated in the pathogenesis of several cancers.


HRAS is altered in 0.97% of all cancers with bladder urothelial carcinoma, myelodysplastic syndromes, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, acute myeloid leukemia, and lung adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

HRAS GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in HRAS are HRAS Mutation (1.32%), HRAS Missense (1.08%), HRAS Codon 61 Missense (0.34%), HRAS Q22Pfs*26 (0.19%), and HRAS Codon 13 Missense (0.18%) [3].
