Abstract
Ras proteins are small GTPases, which serve as master regulators of a myriad of signaling cascades involved in highly diverse cellula r processes. Activating mutations in Ras are found in about one-third of cancers. H-REV107, a K-Ras binding protein, plays an important role in determining K-Ras function. H-REV107 is a member of the HREV107 family of class II tumor suppressor genes and it is a growth inhibitory Ras target gene that suppresses cellular growth, differentiation, and apoptosis. Expression of H-REV107 was strongly reduced in about 50% of human carcinoma cell lines. However, the specific molecular mechanism by which H-REV107 inhibits Ras is still unknown. In this study, we suggested that H-REV107 strongly formed a complex with GDP-bound K-Ras. Modeled three-dimensional complex structures were then used to find the point mutation sites. Some mutations of K-Ras disrupted the complex formation with H-REV107. Hence, this study suggests that H-REV107 regulates K-Ras through a novel molecular mechanism.
