Mammalian ras genes are thought to be critical in the regulation of cellular proliferation and differentiation and are mutated in approximately 30% of all human tumors. However, N-ras and H-ras are nonessential for mouse development. To characterize the normal role of K-ras in growth and development, we have mutated it by gene targeting in the mouse. On an(More)
The mammalian ras gene family encodes key cell-signaling, cell growth-related proteins that have been highly conserved in species from yeast to man. Specific point mutations in the ras genes are associated with various mammalian tumors. To understand the developmental role of the N-ras protooncogene in the mouse, we have disrupted its gene function by(More)
