Computational and experimental analysis of mitogenic signaling pathways activated by oncogenic Ras. The Ras signaling cascade constitutes a major pathway shown to be deregulated due to activating mutations in 30% of all human tumors. The vast majority of mutations occur in K-ras. We use genetically engineered mice that harbor a conditional, activatable K-ras allele as a model of human cancer.
