Small G proteins in cellular signalling and disease

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting

 

Small G proteins regulate a plethora of cell signalling pathways thus impacting on most biological processes. As a result of their broad spread cellular influence, the deregulation of these proteins and their pathways often results in disease, especially cancer. The interest, both academic and commercial, in these proteins has always been intense, but with the instigation of the Ras Initiative by the NCI in 2013, interest is newly invigorated. Hopes are high that new ways being developed will successfully target cancers driven by mutant Ras.
