Homo- or heterodimerization (with RAF1, also known as CRAF) downstream of moderate kinase activity BRAF mutants leads to phosphorylation and activation of the 'receiver' kinase. Unlike the case for the highly active V600E BRAF mutation, pathway activation downstream of moderately activated BRAF mutants depends both on RAS binding and on dimerization (Wan et al, 2004; Roring et al, 2012; Freeman et al, 2013; reviewed in Samatar and Poulikakos, 2014; Lavoie and Therrien, 2015)
