HRAS

A gene on chromosome 11p15.5 belonging to the Ras oncogene family, the protein products of which bind GTP and GDP, have intrinsic GTPase activity, and play key roles in signal transduction. HRAS cycles between de- and re-palmitoylation, a reaction that regulates its rapid exchange between the plasma membrane and the Golgi apparatus.

Molecular pathology
Defects in HRAS are associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer, Hürthle cell carcinoma of thyroid, and oral squamous cell carcinoma. HRAS mutations cause faciocutaneoskeletal syndrome and congenital myopathy with excess of muscle spindles—a variant of Costello syndrome.
