GNAS Mutations: Drivers or Co-Pilots? Yet, Promising Diagnostic Biomarkers



GNAS Mutations: Drivers or Co-Pilots? Yet, Promising Diagnostic Biomarkers



Trends in Cancer 2(6): 282-285



Over 25 years ago, GNAS mutations were discovered associated with McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) and pituitary tumors. The mutant gene, encoding the heterotrimeric Gs protein, was named 'derived from Gs Protein' (gsp) oncogene. For a long time, gsp remained associated with specific endocrine tumors. Recently, high frequencies of gsp were reported for a rapidly growing number of neoplasms in the gastrointestinal tract. Will heterotrimeric G-proteins follow small G-proteins and become recognized as cancer biomarkers and therapeutic targets?
