A New HTS ELISA for Monitoring NRAS Activity to Expedite Drug Discovery

Oncogenic mutations in the KRAS, HRAS, and NRAS isoforms of the RAS gene family alter GTP binding and hydrolysis leading to errant over activation of the MAPK/ERK pathway. While the total of all such RAS mutations drives some 20-25% of all human cancers, each isoform tends to favor particular mutations that are cancer specific. NRAS mutations are seen in about one-fifth of cutaneous melanomas and patients with NRAS mutation melanomas have a poorer prognosis due to the high aggressiveness of RAS mutant tumors, a lack of efficient targeted therapies, or rapidly emerging resistance to existing treatments. In this AACR 2024 poster, we describe the development of a highly specific and sensitive ELISA for determining the active NRAS protein in high throughput compatible (HTS) format.
