Ras mutants displaying selective target interactions will often display partial loss of function phenotypes when expressed in cells. Thus the isolation of mutants in Ras and Ras family members has proved to be a productive approach for testing the requirement of specific target interactions to mediate downstream responses. The procedure outlined here greatly simplify the isolation of such mutants, and it is hoped will contrbute to a better understanding of Ras effector function.
