|Variant(s)||GNAS codon(s) 201, 844 any|
This GNAS mutation causes constitutive activation of the G-protein complex and activates adenylate cyclase to produce cyclic-AMP (cAMP) that can activate oncogenic pathways. The R201 mutation in GNAS was thought to both drive tumor progression and confer exceptional chemo-sensitivity in a patient with an unclassified kidney cancer.
