High impact information on GBAS

  • GBAS, a novel gene encoding a protein with tyrosine phosphorylation sites and a transmembrane domain, is co-amplified with EGFR [1].
  • The GBAS transcript is 2.2 kb in length and contains an 858-bp open reading frame [1].
  • Here we report the identification of and coding sequence for a novel gene, GBAS, that is localized to this region and was found to be amplified in 2 of 12 tumors as well as in 2 of 3 cell lines with EGFR amplification [1].
  • The second human gene, NIPSNAP2, is localized in the vicinity of marker D7S499 on chromosome 7 [2].
