Architecture of autoinhibited and active BRAF-MEK1-14-3-3 complexes

Dr. Mike Eck and colleagues have published their tour de force structural study of BRAF in complex with MEK and 14-3-3 dimers. This work explains longstanding questions about the biochemical behavior of BRAF and provides a foundation for understanding BRAF activation by oncogenic mutations as well as pharmacologic inhibition.
