In addition, it has been reported to have similar kinase activity as the BRAF Val600Glu variant (Eisenhardt 2011).

In vitro studies of this variant demonstrated an increased kinase activity and cellular MEK/ERK activation potential comparable to that of BRAF V600E (Eisenhardt et al., 2011). Presumably, the insertion of an additional Threonine residue at this position destabilizes the inactive conformation of the BRAF kinase domain.
